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 2020 our scheme had 26,638 members, split between 6,754 Active members, 11,860 Deferred Members and 8,024 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.
