An introduction to the LGPS for scheduled bodies
The LGPS provides a positive benefit for its members; however, participating in the LGPS as a scheduled body comes with a range of potentially significant obligations including:
- Making regular contributions on behalf of employees and making additional contributions if the scheme is in deficit;
- Facilitating communications with scheme members;
- Setting up administrative processes for making payments; and
- Providing accurate and complete data to the scheme when requested.
This guidance will help you to obtain a full appreciation of these obligations and any associated risks.
