We automatically enrol new employees into the Local Government Pension Scheme.

We offer a career average pension scheme, providing generous benefits upon retirement, as well as a lump sum and pension for dependants.

Your contribution rate is based on how much you are paid. It’s currently between 5.5% and 12.5% of your pensionable pay.
