Left an employment after 31 March 2014 with a deferred benefit, were in the LGPS on both the 31 March and 1 April 2014, and re-joined the LGPS without having a break of more than 5 years*

*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 that you have previous deferred benefits in the LGPS.

You therefore have a decision to make about what should happen to those deferred benefits.

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 new 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.
