Exit Payment Cap

The Local Government Association (LGA) has produced an Exit cap information for LGPS employers document. This sets out a process for employers to follow from 4th November 2020 for redundancy and efficiency exits where the employee is a member of the LGPS and aged 55 or over. 

Due to Covid-19 and the latest Government advice, some of our staff are self-isolating and/or working remotely from home. Therefore, we are currently operating a reduced service. We will endeavour to answer your queries as soon as practicably possible.

The Pension Administration Strategy has now been approved. This has followed employer consultation, feedback received and consideration by the Pension Committee. The strategy ensures both the Administering Authority and the Fund employers are fully aware of their responsibilities under the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). It also outlines the performance standards they are expected to meet. This is to ensure delivery of a high quality and cost effective administration service. The Pension Administration Strategy can be viewed in the Regulatory Statements webpage. It can also be found below under the "other employer information" section on this webpage.
