Powys County Council Pension Fund is part of the national Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
If you join the fund you become a member and you will get a pension paid to you when you retire.
Members include people who work for Powys County Council (other than Teachers), and a range of other organisations such as local colleges or town and community councils who have applied to be part of the fund. More than 19 such organisations in Powys allow their employees to join the Fund.
The LGPS is a statutory scheme public service pension scheme. This means that it is very secure because the amount members are paid in retirement is defined and guaranteed in law.
Teachers have their own pension scheme and are not part of Powys County Council Pension Fund. Please click on the following link for information about pension arrangements for Teachers: www.teacherspensions.co.uk
