Local Government Pension Scheme (Amendment) (No 2) Regulations 2004 come into force

Implementation date: 1 April 2005

To be revoked: (see note in bold below). The Regulations make amendments to the Local Government Pension Scheme. Amendments to the Scheme include the scrapping of the 85-year rule, whereby a member who takes early retirement can claim full pensions benefits if their combined age and service amount to 85 years or more. The earliest age at which benefits can be paid from the Scheme also increases from 50 to 55. The Government has announced that it plans to revoke these Regulations . The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
