Can my employer award me any extra benefits?
Your employer, at their discretion, can award additional annual pension up to £7,026.
This can be awarded to you if you are an active member or within six months of leaving the Scheme if you leave on the grounds of redundancy or business efficiency. You can ask your employer what their policy is on this.
Your employer can also, at their discretion, pay into your AVC scheme arranged through the LGPS (in-house AVCs). This is known as a shared cost AVC arrangement.
