i-Connect is a secure platform which automates the submission of pension data.

Our aim is that all of our employers will have replaced the current year-end return process and the majority of individual data submissions with i-Connect by December 2021. 

How it works

i-Connect reduces the costs and risks associated with processing pension data, by seamlessly generating automatic submissions of monthly data collection to the fund in a single solution. Data is extracted directly from the employer's payroll system, and enables the automatic identification of new joiners, optant outs and leavers.

The benefits

i-Connect will provide significant benefits to you, your Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) members and the scheme, including:

  • reducing the time spent on pensions administration
  • accurate data submissions
  • no more year-end returns
  • fewer data error investigations
  • reducing the need for submission of data via individual forms
  • speedier responses to your employer enquiries
  • user-friendly platform
  • secure data transmission

The support we'll provide

We'll work with you to determine a suitable transition date. We'll also provide support for your move to i-Connect via workshops, meetings and our dedicated project team.

Initial i-Connect meeting

We hosted an initial meeting on 28 January 2020 to which all our employers were invited. The meeting included a demonstration of i-Connect. The slides from the meeting are attached to this page.
