Our work for Local Authorities

Our work for Local Authorities

We represent 75% of the UK’s Local Authorities. We support these funds with specialist services and events, as well as specific and vital lobbying in pensions policy areas at a time of change and high public profile.

We aim to ensure that proposals for reform of the Local Government Pension

Scheme are proportionate and focussed on deficit reduction, not just costs.

Our mission is to make certain that freedom and choice works in the LGPS, making the case against mandated structural reform and working hard on greater transparency of data and better management of deficits.

We run the leading conference for the local government pension scheme sector, bringing together funds and their advisers to discuss and debate the key issues of the day.

We host two free-to-attend forums each year for members to discuss LGPS changes with the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Local Government Association.

Our Local Authority Committee informs our policy work on matters of specific interest to local authority pension funds and to contribute to the work of the DB Council.
