Rejoining the LGPS
If you rejoin the LGPS before your deferred pension becomes payable, you can elect, within 12 months of rejoining, to keep your deferred benefits separate from your new pension account. If you do not elect to keep your benefits separate, we will automatically join your deferred benefits with your new pension account.
If you were a member of the LGPS in England or Wales before 1 April 2014, different rules may apply. We will provide you with information about your options, when you rejoin the LGPS.
