In the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) you have a separate pension account for each employment. We have been informed that one of your employments in the LGPS has ceased and you therefore now hold deferred benefits in respect of that employment.

As you are continuing in the LGPS in your other employment(s*) you need to decide what should happen to the deferred benefits you have built up in respect of your ceased employment.

Unless you tell us otherwise, the amount of pension you have built up after 31 March 2014 in your deferred pension account will automatically be transferred and added to your ongoing active pension account and the membership you built up before 1 April 2014 in the final salary scheme will continue to count as final salary membership automatically linked to your new active pension account.
