Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)
Pensions Shared Service - Camden, Merton, Richmond and Wandsworth
The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is a nationwide scheme for employees working for Camden or other employers participating in the scheme.
Pensions Shared Service – Annual Benefit Statements update
The Annual Benefit Statements (ABS) for 2014/15 are delayed. We are sorry
that we’ve been unable to provide the statements within the statutory deadline.
This is due, in the main, to the complex new information and data requirements of
the LGPS 2014 CARE scheme and the collating and recording of information from employer
payroll systems. We are working on the information received from the payroll
providers to update our pension system to enable us to produce the statements by the
end of November.
“Freedom and Choice”
You may have read about and seen the adverts on TV recently about the forthcoming flexibilites around withdrawing money from pension schemes. We have been receiving enquiries about whether members of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) can use these new flexibilities so more information about these provisions and how they interact with the LGPS can be found here. You should be aware that these new arrangements apply to Defined Contribution pension saving arrangements and not Defined Benefit pension schemes so these arrangements do not directly affect the LGPS.
