HOW MUCH WILL I PAY?
The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is provided for you by your employer who pays the bulk of the cost of your benefits.
How much it costs you depends on how much you are paid but it will be between 5.5 and 7.5% of your pay. The rate you pay depends on which pay band you fall into.
The amount you actually pay is far less than you think because contributions are tax-free and you pay a lower rate of national insurance.
If you work part-time, your rate will be based on the full-time pay rate for your job, although you will only pay contributions on the pay you actually earn.
