Lambeth 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 Lambeth Council, and a whole range other organisations such as local colleges, academies or contractors who have applied to be part of the fund.
The LGPS is a statutory scheme. This means that it is very secure because the amount members are paid in retirement is defined and set out in law.
Teachers and operational staff in the police and fire and rescue service have their own pension schemes and are not part of the Lambeth Pension Fund.
