Councillors and the LGPS

The LGPS used to be available to councillors and elected mayors of an English County Council or District Council, who joined the scheme before 31 March 2014.

This Scheme is now closed.  

Closure of the scheme to councillor members was confirmed by a written ministerial statement. When the scheme closed, all councillor members were written to and given their options. Information on when benefits can be paid can be found in the scheme guide below.

For more information about the scheme and its features for former councillor members please see the councillors scheme guide (This document is for historical reference only. Many of the LGPS features included in this guide no longer apply now the scheme is closed to Councillors).
