Once enrolled in the scheme, you have the right to opt out. To do this, you must request an opt out form from the Pension Section by phoning 01286 679982, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or downloading a form from the Attachments section below.
You should return the form immediately to your employer.
The employer will then arrange to cease deductions.
If you have been in the shceme for less than 2 years, and you have no other benefits with any other Local Government Pension Scheme, your contributions will be refunded (less the relevant tax deductions).
If you have been in the scheme for more than 2 years, or you have other benefits with any other Local Government Pension Scheme, your contributions will remain in the Gwynedd Pension Fund, where your pension will be deferred until you retire, or tranfer your benefits out of the fund.
