Are you letting a contract affecting LGPS members? Please let us know.
Making sure transferring employees (or former employees on a re-tender) have pensions protection, is a legal requirement. In most cases, this means that they should have continued access to the LGPS.
The LGPS regulations allow new contractors to offer transferring staff continued eligibility for the LGPS during the contract by entering into an admission agreement with the fund.
It's important that you contact us if you're outsourcing a service affecting LGPS members (as well as potential members who have opted out) at email@example.com at the start of the process. We've made a guide on this process, which can be found on our website.
