Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)

The LGPS is a defined benefit (DB) pension scheme for employees working in local government. Members of DB schemes are promised a guaranteed pension income in retirement. This means that the financial risk of the scheme’s investment falls to the employers in the scheme.
 

For all general scheme information, please use the LGPS member website.

Pensions Online (member portal)

LGPS members can use Pensions Online to instantly access and manage their pension information. Currently you are able to:

  • access your annual benefit statements

  • update your personal details

  • review your nominations, years of service, earnings, contributions and transfers (if applicable)

  • run a retirement estimate (if you are 55 or over)
     

If you have benefits in both the Sutton Council and Kingston Council Pension Funds then you will need to register twice (once per Fund).

All other pension enquiries can be made by sending an email to skpensions@sutton.gov.uk or by calling 020 8770 5290. Normal office hours are between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
