For members of the Local Government Pension Scheme in Scotland
The LGPS is administered locally by 11 local pension funds in Scotland. You will generally belong to the pension fund in the area that you work, or if you have left the Scheme, where you used to work. Contact your employer if you are not sure. If you have a pension credit, your pension fund is where those benefits are held.
You may have lost touch with your former pension schemes but, if you have, don’t worry as the Pension Tracing Service can help. It holds details of almost 200,000 UK pension schemes and provides a tracing service free of charge. You can contact them at:
