You left a concurrent employment after 31 March 2014 with an entitlement to a deferred benefit in the LGPS, were in the Scheme on both the 31 March and 1 April 2014, and continue to be an active member of the LGPS in an ongoing employment

31 March calendarIn the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) you have a separate pension account for each employment. As you are continuing in the LGPS in your other employment(s) you need to decide what should happen to the deferred benefits you have built up in respect of your ceased employment.

If you have more than one active pension account (because you have more than one current employment in which you are contributing to the LGPS) you will also, if you decide to combine your benefits, need to decide which active pension account your deferred benefit is combined with.

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 ongoing 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.
