TISonline Pensions

This TISonline information stream is a comprehensive guide to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). Aimed at practitioners involved in managing the scheme, it is also a valuable resource for members of the scheme and all those who need an understanding of the LGPS and how it operates.

The LGPS is one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK with over 5 million members, and is a complex scheme with many specific regulatory requirements. TISonline Pensions provides a comprehensive overview of the scheme, explaining the roles, responsibilities and processes that ensure the funds are managed effectively. 

It also sets out the governance requirements and key considerations for scheme administration, accounting, audit, risk and fund valuation.

Coverage includes:

  • LGPS reform
  • managing the fund
  • benefits
  • revolving disputes and pension rights
  • scheme administration
  • accounting
  • audit
  • risk management.
