I have joined a different pension scheme. Can I transfer my LGPS (NI) benefits to my new scheme?

You may be able to transfer the value of your pension to another occupational pension scheme, personal pension or stakeholder pension scheme.

If you are thinking of transferring your benefits, particularly to a personal pension or money purchase arrangement, you should take independent financial advice and beware of unauthorised companies.  More information can be found on the following websites:
