Left an employment before 1 April 2014 with a deferred refund and now re-joined the LGPS without having had a break of 5 years*

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

1 April 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 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 continue to count as Pre 1 April 2014 final salary membership* in your new active employment.
