Administering the Local Government Pension Scheme, Police and Fire schemes

How much do I have to pay?

The rate of contributions you pay will be based on your actual pensionable pay and if you get paid non-contractual overtime you will also pay contributions on this pensionable pay. If you elect for the 50/50 section of the scheme you would pay half the rates listed below.

Assessing your contribution rate

Your employer will decide the appropriate contribution rate for each employment by matching your actual pensionable pay to the appropriate band and section in the contribution table.

How often and when your contribution rate is reviewed is decided by your employer.  If this results in a change to your contribution rate, they will let you know.
