LGPS Employer

Spence helps you manage your LGPS costs and risks with strategic advice on contributions, funding targets, and alternative pension options.

Navigating LGPS Participation

Understanding your role and options

As a participating employer in a Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), you could be a charity or not-for-profit organisation or a public sector outsourcer.

You may be a “scheduled body” in which case you have to be in LGPS, or an “admitted body” in which case it can be possible to exit LGPS.

Managing LGPS Risks and Contributions

Adapting to changing funding levels and exploring future options

You experienced increasing LGPS contribution rates during the 2010s, but in the 2020s you’ve seen significant improvements in LGPS funding levels, and in some cases reductions in employer contributions.

But your LGPS exposure remains a risk, and deficits could re-emerge in the future.  The funding position, particularly on a cessation basis, remains volatile with assets generally not matched to the assessment of the liabilities.

You may therefore be wanting to understand your options, if you are either a scheduled body or an admitted body.
