Previous Pension

If you have a deferred pension with us and are rejoining the Fund, or have a deferred pension from membership of the LGPS with another Authority, you can link it to your current membership.

If you have a deferred refund from membership within LGPS, or you have a deferred pension from a concurrent employment, this will automatically be linked to your current membership.

Other pension schemes

If you have benefits from other pension schemes you may be able to transfer them into the Fund.

You may be able to transfer benefits from:

• Previous employer's scheme
• Personal pension
• Stakeholder pension
• Free-standing AVC scheme
Any transfer payment received from a previous pension arrangement that does not participate in the Transfer Club will secure additional CARE pension in the Fund.

Transfers from other Public Service schemes, or schemes that participate in the Transfer Club, may secure additional pensionable service that would give final salary benefits or additional CARE pension, depending on the particular circumstances.
