LGPS National Insurance Database
A data sharing project with other LGPS pension funds in England, Wales and Scotland has been undertaken in order to comply with legal requirements contained in the LGPS’s governing regulations.
Provisions contained in the LGPS Regulations 2013 mean that, if a member of the LGPS dies, it is necessary for the scheme’s administrators to know if the individual also had other periods of LGPS membership elsewhere in the country so that the right death benefits can be calculated and paid to the deceased member’s dependants.
