The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is
a statutory, funded, final salary pension scheme. As such it is
very secure because its benefits are defined and guaranteed in law.
The LGPS is contracted out of the State Second Pension Scheme known

received had they been members of the State Second Scheme.
To qualify for certain benefits a
member may be required to have a minimum of 3 months pension scheme
