Final Pay

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Final pay is the figure used to work out final salary benefits in the LGPS. Final pay is usually the pay due for your final year of Scheme membership. Pay for one of the previous two years can be used if it is higher. Final pay includes:
  • your normal pay
  • contractual shift allowance
  • bonus
  • contractual overtime
  • maternity, paternity, adoption or shared parental pay
  • any other taxable benefit specified in your contract as being pensionable.
Final pay does not include non-contractual overtime.
If you were part time during your final year, your final pay is based on the pay you would have been due if you had worked full time.
If your pay in the final year is reduced because of sickness or child-related leave, final pay is the pay that would have been due if you had not been sick or on leave.
