Thinking of Joining the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)

Not a member? 

Should I be? 

Consider the following 

  • no regular index-linked monthly pension payment for life.
  • no tax-free lump sum to enjoy at retirement.

  • no survivors pensions to take care of loved ones.

  • no life-protection from death-in-service to help out in a tragedy.

  • no redundancy cover from age 55.

  • no ill-health cover at any age.

  • no realistic chance of retiring early
