The following Pensions guidance note Produced in partnership with Gary Delderfield of Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is a statutory, public-service pension scheme for local government and related employees in England and Wales.
The provisions dealing with admission agreements are found in the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations 2013, SI 2013/2356 (the LGPS Regs 2013).
For a template admission agreement, see Precedent: Admission Agreement.
For further information on the LGPS, see Practice Note: The Post-2014 Local Government Pension Scheme.
There are three main categories of employer that participate in the LGPS:
scheme employers whose employees are automatically eligible for LGPS membership
scheme employers who must designate their employees in order to be eligible for LGPS membership, and
admission bodies who must enter into an admission agreement to participate in the LGPS
For more information on the first two categories of employers, see Practice Note: The Post-2014 Local Government Pension Scheme — Participating employers.
For information on admission bodies, see immediately below.
The previous LGPS Regulations (SI 2008/239) referred to two different types of admission bodies:
community admission bodies, and
transferee admission bodies
The LGPS Regs 2013 now refer simply to ‘admission bodies’, although the LGPS Regs 2013 contain distinctions as between different categories of admission bodies that reflect the old style ‘community’ and ‘transferee’ distinctions.
Within the LGPS Regs 2013 (paragraphs 1(a)–(e) of Pt 3 of Sch 2),
