About the Fund

The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is a statutory scheme for local authority employees, operated under regulations issued by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. The Scheme is administered on a local basis and the Council is responsible for the Scheme within the geographical areas of North Yorkshire and the City of York.

In addition to employees working in local government, a number of other public, education and voluntary sector employees are also members of the LGPS. Private contractors engaged in local authority work are also able to participate in the scheme.
