Open consultation on reforming local government exit pay

These changes affect the automatic entitlement to unreduced pension benefits for members over age 55 who leave the scheme because of redundancy/efficiency.

While the changes are being finalised, we are currently unable to provide any estimates for 'pension strain cost' on redundancy or efficiency leavers post 31 December 2020, please email with any queries.

Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) have published a consultation on restricting exit payments in local government in England and Wales. More information on the proposed reforms

The consultation closes on 9 November 2020.
