Leaving and retirement

older coupleWhen a member of the LGPS leaves employment, opts out of the scheme or is no longer eligible to be a member, the pension contributions must stop and Pension Services need to know. A key employer role is to  decide on benefit entitlement, according to the regulations.

The tabs on this page take you, the employer, to more information and related processes for someone leaving the LGPS, when a pension:

  • must be payable immediately
  • could be payable if the member takes action
  • is not due immediately
