The McCloud judgment and your LGPS pension factsheet

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has published a member factsheet - The McCloud judgment and your LGPS pension - that summarises the McCloud judgment and changes the Government are making to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) in England and Wales.

The DLUHC factsheet sets out how the changes may affect you if:

  • you were paying into the LGPS or another public service pension scheme before 1 April 2012
  • you were also paying into the LGPS between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2022
  • you have been a member of a public service pension scheme without a continuous break of more than 5 years

What action do you need to take?

You don’t need to do anything. If you qualify for the underpin protection, we will work out if an addition is due to be paid to you when you take your pension. If you have already retired, we will work out if you are due an addition to your existing pension. We will do this as soon as possible after 1 October 2023.
