Rejoining the LGPS
If you rejoin the LGPS before your deferred pension comes into payment, you can elect for these deferred benefits to be transferred to your new pension account.
If you elect for that to happen, the membership you built up before 1 April 2008 will purchase an amount of pension under the rules of the scheme at the time of the transfer and this will be added to your active pension account. If you do not make such an election you will retain separate deferred benefits.
You should take financial advice before doing so, especially if your current job is on a lower salary that the job linked to your deferred benefit.
