Retirement

LGPS 2018 - retirement from age 55 

Changes to the LGPS (Scotland) Regulations came into force on 1 June 2018.  You can view the LGPS (Scotland) 2018 Regulations here.  Members who were in the Scheme at 1 June 2018 can retire from age 55.  

If you take your benefits before your Normal Pension Age, your benefits will be reduced for early payment. This reduction can be as much as 52% if taking benefits 13 years early. The quickest and easiest way to see your reduced benefits is to use the My Pension Online service. Visit our home page and click on the links to login or register.  The online service mirrors exactly the information held by the Fund.
