1 April calendar*After 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 benefit relates.

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

As you have now re-joined the LGPS you are no longer eligible to take the refund of the contributions and so the benefits in respect of the deferred refund will automatically be transferred to, and buy an amount of earned pension, in your new active pension account.
