Local Government Pension Scheme Letters

Members by now should have received a letter from the Council’s Finance & Procurement Service in relation to the Local Government Pension Scheme. These letters and the attached mandate should be self explanatory but as a number of members have contacted the Branch the Branch Executive who met on the 29th June agreed to post some further advice.

If members don’t have any previous local government pension scheme membership than that shown on their latest pension statement then no further action is required ie, there is no need to complete and return the mandate.

Only if members have membership of the LGPS that isn’t noted on their statements should any contact be made with the payroll/pension team.
