How can you temporarily reduce your contributions?

The LGPS offers you the flexibility to pay half your normal contribution rate and build up half your normal pension whilst retaining full life and ill-health cover. This is called the 50/50 section of the LGPS, it is designed to help members stay in the scheme, building up valuable pension benefits, during times of financial hardship.

To move to the 50/50 section, you will need to contact your employer pensions/payroll department.

For more information on the 50/50 section, please click the following links:
