Wiltshire Pension Fund is part of the national Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
Under the LGPS Regulations Wiltshire Council is the Administering Authority for the Wiltshire Pension Fund.
Members of the Fund include people who work for Wiltshire Council, and a whole range other organisations such as local Colleges or Town and Parish Councils. More than 170 employers allow their employees to join the Fund. Teachers and operational staff in the Police and Fire and Rescue Service have their own Pension Schemes and are not part of Wiltshire Pension Fund. We currently have over 80,000 members.
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.
Members' pensions are funded in part by contributions paid into the scheme by the employers and the members, and in part by the returns earned on the Fund's investments, which are held in investment portfolios valued at >£3bn.
