Who runs the Norfolk Pension Fund?

The Norfolk Pension Fund is run by the Norfolk County Council.

This means that Norfolk County Council is the "administering authority" in the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Regulations.

The Norfolk Pension Fund publishes a Governance Strategy Statement each year which reflects our commitment to transparency and engagement with employers and scheme members

The Council has set up the Norfolk Pension Fund Pensions Committee who act as trustees of the Fund to make decisions and take responsibility for management of the Fund.

In line with all public service pension schemes, each Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) fund is required to have a Local Pension Board. The Local Pension Board for the Norfolk Pension Fund is called the Norfolk Pension Fund Pensions Oversight Board.

Administering authorities have to act in the interests of all employers, members and their dependants within the Fund. The role of the administering authority is very similar to that of a trustee.
