You left employment after 31 March 2014 with an entitlement to a deferred benefit, were in the Scheme on both 31 March and 1 April 2014 and have now re-joined the LGPS without a continuous break in active membership of a public service pension scheme*

31 March calendar*Without 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

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.
 
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 you wish your deferred benefit to be combined with.
