We operate the Local Government Pension Scheme, one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK. The Pension Scheme changed significantly in April 2014 for all active members. We have updated the information on this site to reflect the changes but we will continue to update the website to provide further information concerning the scheme for members who have joined at different points in time.

We hope that our website will give you all the information you need to know about the scheme, how it is administered by Wiltshire Pension Fund and, most importantly, how you can benefit from being a member.

If you have any suggestions about how we can improve our website, please feel free to contact us.

You can also visit the national LGPS website for more information.

Overseas Pensioners

From time to time it is necessary for Wiltshire Pension Fund to verify that our records are in order, and to ensure pension payments should continue to be made. This ensures that our records are correct, acts as an anti-fraud exercise and safeguards the Funds' assets.

For pensioners who like overseas and have their monthly payments paid into a foreign bank, the process is slightly different. We have engaged with Western Union Business Solutions and require you to visit a Western Union Agent location to confirm your identity and that you remain entitled to receive a pension from the Fund. Details regarding this exercise will be sent out shortly.

National Fraud Initiative (NFI) Exercise

We are required by law to protect the public funds we administer. We may share information provided to us with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds in order to prevent and detect fraud.

The Audit Commission currently requires us to participate in its anti-fraud initiative. For this initiative, we are providing details of pensioners so that they can be compared to information provided by other public bodies. This will ensure, for example, that no pensioners are being paid to persons who are deceased or no longer entitled to a benefit.

Letters will be sent to all pensioners soon regarding this exercise.

New LGPS member website

A new LGPS member website has been created by The Local Government Association and replaces the LGPS2014 website. The new website contains all the information you need regarding your Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). The website can be found at www.lgpsmember.org
