This section is for our Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) employers.

The pages within this section provide guidance and support to bodies:

  • who employ staff eligible for membership of the LGPS
  • who used to employ staff who contributed to the LGPS
  • who will, potentially be employing staff eligible for the LGPS

Joining Derbyshire Pension Fund as an LGPS employer, will either be compulsory, or a choice depending on what category of employer you fall into. This section contains information about each type of scheme employer and will help you prepare for joining the fund so that the transition is as seamless as possible from the perspective of your LGPS eligible employees.

The ongoing co-operation between employers and the fund is vital in order to achieve smooth and robust administration of the LGPS. The guidance and best practice methods are aimed at improving efficiency and reducing administrative costs to you and us, whilst providing your LGPS members with an effective and consistent service.
