31 March calendar*Without having had a continuous break in active membership of a public service pension scheme of more than 5 years since ceasing to be an active member of the LGPS in the employment to which the deferred refund relates.

You have re-joined the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) and we note you have a deferred refund account in the Scheme.

As you have now re-joined the LGPS you are no longer eligible to take a refund of the contributions in your deferred refund account and so the amount of pension you have built up after 31 March 2014 in your deferred refund account will automatically be transferred and added into your new active pension account*.

*Please note if you have more than one active pension account (because you have more than one current employment in which you are contributing to the LGPS) you will need to indicate on the attached form which active pension account you wish your deferred refund account to be combined with.
