Important changes to the early payment of deferred pension benefits

Published: Wednesday, 4th July 2018

Changes have been made to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) affecting the early payment of Deferred Benefits.

If you are a former member of the LGPS and hold a deferred pension you can now access your pension benefits earlier than your Normal Pension Age (NPA).

Different rules apply depending on when you ceased your LGPS membership, therefore please visit the Former Members section of this website for more information.
