Late Retirement

If you carry on working after age 65 you will continue to pay into the scheme, building up further LGPS benefits. You benefits will be paid when:

  • you retire; or
  • you reach the eve of your 75th birthday; or

whichever occurs first.

If you draw your benefits after age 65, your benefits built up before age 65 will be increased to reflect the fact that it will be paid for a shorter period.

Your pension has to be paid the day before your 75th birthday.
