With 4.6 million members, the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK.

The LGPS is a nationwide scheme and is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for employees working in local government or working for other employers participating in the Scheme and for some councillors.

As well as HEIs, employers in the Scheme include local authorities and public service organisations as well as other employers which provide the LGPS for their employees by becoming admitted bodies.

In UK HEIs most individual scheme members are support staff working in post-92 universities and HE colleges, though some pre-92 universities also have members of the local schemes.

The website is managed by Local Government Employers (LGE) on behalf of the local pension fund administrators and local government employers.

Information in the LGPS in Scotland can be found on the SPPA website
