Information for LGPS members and employers

How to obtain information about the LGPS.

Hampshire County Council is our pension administration partners.

The benefits available to members from the scheme are unchanged and will continue to build up in the same way they do currently.

Although the Local Government Pension Scheme is administered locally it is a national statutory public service scheme, with the benefits set out in regulations passed through parliament.
