The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK with over 4 million members.

The Isle of Wight Council Pensions Office administers all aspects of the LGPS and we have put together a selection of information leaflets that cover many aspects of the scheme.  Please see the ‘forms and leaflets’ tab above.

The 'FAQs' tab above has answers to many frequently asked questions.
