The Norfolk Pension Fund is part of the national Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)
The Norfolk Pension Fund is part of the LGPS (Local Government Pension Scheme).
The LGPS is a national pension scheme administered locally by about 90 local authorities on behalf of hundreds of local councils and associated bodies across the UK.
The LGPS is a statutory scheme. This means that it is very secure because the amount members are paid in retirement is defined and set out in law.
If you join the Norfolk Pension Fund you become a member and you will get a pension paid to you when you retire.
Members include people who work for the Norfolk County Council, and a whole range other organisations such as local colleges or town and parish councils who have applied to be part of the fund. More than 400 employers allow their employees to join the fund.
Teachers and operational staff in the police and fire and rescue service have their own pension schemes and are not part of the Norfolk Pension Fund.
