About this site
Welcome to the Local Government and Firefighters' Pension Division's ("LGFPS") new web site. The site has undergone a major re-design to reflect current web page design and to make the site more accessible to a wider audience. The world of pensions has become a complex and high priority issue and while it is hoped that the new site will continue to be of use to pension practitioners in local government and elsewhere, our aim is also to attract visitors who are interested in wider issues, for example, stakeholder pensions and flexible retirement initiatives. The new site consists of six main sections:-
A short "who does what" guide to LGFPS.
A list of over 30 links to related sites. Of particular interest will be the Local Government Employers (formerly the LGPC) site which includes an up to date copy of the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations with direct links to Frequently Asked Questions and appeal decisions relating to individual provisons of the scheme. LGPS scheme members will want to visit the members' web site for the latest information on the scheme and for useful tools like the benefits ready reckoner.
This section of the site includes information about the latest issues affecting the LGPS and pensions in general.
Here you will find a useful catalogue of consultation and discussion papers issued by us together with a selection of other publications of wider interest. If the document itself is not available, a link is provided to the relevant web site where the document can be printed or downloaded.
Another useful catalogue of all the Statutory Instruments issued by Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and its pre-decessors, relating to the Local Government Pension Scheme.
As yet, our web site does not have a dedicated search engine but this index should help you to find what you are looking for.
Only topical issues and documents are available on the main web site. To keep the site fast and tidy, items which are no longer of current interest are transferred to this archive.
