What about my other non-LGPS pensions?

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Piggy banksIf you have paid into another non-LGPS pension arrangement, you may be able to transfer your previous pension rights into the LGPS (provided you are not already drawing them as a pension).

You only have 12 months from joining the LGPS to opt to transfer your previous pension rights, unless your employer and administering authority allows you longer.

This is a discretion; you can ask your employer what its policy is on this matter.

Whether or not you should transfer your pension rights is not always an easy decision to make, and you may wish to seek the help of an independent financial adviser.
