Survivor's pension payable to your spouse if you left the LGPS before 1 April 2008
For each year you were a member of the LGPS you accrued a pension based on your final year's pay.
The pension payable to your spouse is calculated on a different proportion:
1/160th of your final pay times the period of your membership in the Scheme upon which your pension is based, unless you marry after retiring in which case it could be less.
If you marry after retiring:
your husband’s pension is based on your membership after 5 April 1988 your wife’s pension is based on your membership after 5 April 1978.
