LGPS Employers

We can help with your LGPS participation. With over 15,000 employers in the LGPS, we want to make sure that you too have the right support and information.

We can help you understand what being part of the LGPS means for your organisation, and help you understand your future options.

Information for Academies

We’ve successfully helped Multi Academy Trusts consolidate their pension schemes into one LGPS Fund to reduce administrative complexities and pay a single LGPS contribution rate.

You can find out more about how we helped academies consolidate into one LGPS Fund here.

We can also provide support on:

  • understanding and mitigating pension scheme risks (e.g. the cost of ill-health retirements);
  • advice on the issues arising from outsourcing agreements; and
  • training sessions on funding and pension scheme issues

Navigating the LGPS

We have found Hymans to be extremely responsive and helpful to us in navigating our current and future pension arrangements. Julie and Ross have been very easy to talk to and helped us to make sense of, at times, very complicated information.
