A pension is a way of saving for your future retirement. It's important to start planning early to make sure you'll have enough money for your later life. 

Our fund is part of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), which is a defined benefit scheme. As a member of our fund, you and your employer pay towards the cost of your pension. Payroll take your contributions before they work out your tax, so you receive tax relief. It’s easy to join if you’re eligible.
