Information for members of the LGPS and those with police, firefighter, teacher and NHS pensions

How do I join?

Find out how to become a member of the LGPS.

Membership is automatic for most employees though you have the right to opt out of the scheme at any time. However, if you are not a member, your employer must re-enrol you into the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) every three years.

To be eligible to join the LGPS you need to:

  • be under 75
  • work for an employer that offers membership of the scheme.

If you are a current County Council employee and would like to join or re-join the LGPS, please contact Shared Services using the details below.

Alternatively, you can complete a new starter form below and send this to the email address provided in the form. If you email your completed form, please add the phrase 'I confirm I personally submitted this notice to join the Local Government Pension Scheme'.

If you are a current employee of another West Sussex Pension Fund employer and are not already a member of the LGPS, but would like to join or re-join if you have previously opted out, please contact your employer. Alternatively, you can complete a new starter form and send this to your employer.
