The LGPS changed on 1 April 2014. It is now a career average scheme for any benefits built up after 1 April 2014. However, any benefits built up prior to 1 April 2014 are protected, for all members, under the rules that applied when the benefits built up.
These pages will provide you with information regarding any LGPS 2014 protections that may apply to your benefits. Here you will be able to find information about:
- How your pre LGPS 2014 benefits will be calculated
- The Underpin (additional protection for those age 55 or over on 1 April 2012)
- The 85 Year Rule
