Reassurance on your Local Government Pension


You may have seen stories in the media over recent weeks describing pension funds as being ‘in crisis’ and wondered whether the pension you have accrued with East Riding Pension Fund is being affected. Please be reassured that these problems do not affect the Local Government Pension Scheme or the pension benefits that are payable to scheme members. These stories relate to certain private sector pension funds and problems they have faced since the Government's mini budget in September. For pensioners, active members in the pension scheme and those with deferred pensions benefits, your pension entitlement is protected by law and is guaranteed.
