Lewisham Pension Fund is part of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
Members include employees of Lewisham Council, Admitted and Scheduled Bodies to the scheme and non-teaching staff in our Schools.
At 1st April 2019 our scheme had 25,964 members, split between 6,726 Active members, 11,469 Deferred Members and 7,769 Pensioners.
The LGPS is a statutory scheme. This means that it is a secure scheme as the benefits members are paid are defined and set out in Law.
Teachers have their own Pensions Schemes and are not part of the Lewisham Local Government Pension Scheme.
