On leaving the Local Government Pension Scheme without an immediate entitlement to receive your benefits, you will have various options available to you:
- Deferred Benefits
- Transfer to another Local Government Pension Fund if you take up further employment with an employer who participates in the LGPS.
- Transfer to a non-Local Government pension scheme such as a new employer's scheme or even a personal pension plan.
- Refund of pension contributions (if you have less than 2 years of LGPS membership).
- Opting-out of the LGPS
