Transferring previous Pension Benefits

Scheme rules do not permit you to transfer pension rights into the Scheme from another pension arrangement or from another Local Authority Pension Fund.

You may, however, opt to aggregate an earlier councillor membership with the current period of councillor membership, provided they are both in the same LGPS Fund.

Such an option must take place within 12 months of rejoining the Scheme, although the council may use its discretion to extend this period.
