A deferred members no longer pay into the Scheme but have pension benefits held within Lothian Pension Fund to be paid on retirement.

Please note: changes have been made to the LGPS for members who are paying into the Scheme from 1 June 2018.  These changes currently do not affect members who have left the Scheme and deferred their benefits unless they have other active benefits for another job.
