The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers and to this end may use your information for the prevention and detection of fraud. It may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes.
The LGPS currently participates in an anti-fraud initiative organised by the Audit Commission, which is carried out under Section 6 of the Audit Commission Act 1998.
Under this act, non-financial details of deferred and pensioner members are provided to the commission so that they can compare this with information provided by other public bodies.
