How Much Do I Pay?

As a Councillor member of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) you will make contributions to the scheme. These contributions will attract tax relief.

Your actual pension contribution rate will be 6% of your pay. For Councillors in Wales, this pay will be your basic and special responsibility allowance. 

Employer Contributions

Your Council pays the balance of the cost of providing your benefits in the LGPS. Every 3 years an actuarial valuation is undertaken to calculate how much the Council should contribute to the scheme.
