Your membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) automatically includes life cover for your family if you die before taking your pension.

More information is available on the levels of cover you will receive if you die as an active member, a deferred member or a pensioner member.

However, you can also use additional voluntary contributions (AVCs) to provide extra life cover. 

If you'd like to discuss setting up extra life cover via your existing AVC payment or a new policy with the Prudential, please call their retirement special team for more information on 0800 032 6674, Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm.

Once your request has been processed, Prudential will notify us and we'll arrange with your employer for your AVC payment to be taken directly from your pay.
