Pension Freedom - Government changes to accessing pension as cash 

The UK Government changes that came into effect on 6 April 2015 apply only to pension schemes where a member has to buy a pension at retirement.  These are called Defined Contribution schemes (DC)  The Local Government Pension Scheme is a Defined Benefit scheme (DB) and therefore the changes announced do not apply. You can find out about the Government's changes here
