Pension Scheme

Employees with a contract of employment for 3 months or more are automatically included in our Local Government Pension Scheme which is a career average scheme.  Pension contribution rates are based on a tiered system determined by your annual full time equivalent pensionable pay.  For example for those earning up to and including £21,800 the contribution rate you pay is 5.5% of your salary. The council pays the rest of the cost of providing your benefits. This amount varies but it's always enough to make sure your pension can be paid and will be at least 19.3% of your pay.  In addition you get tax relief on your contributions - the tax you pay on your salary is calculated after your pension contributions are deducted. 

Other main pension benefits include a pension that increases each year in line with price inflation and the ability to exchange some of your pension to provide a tax free lump sum.  Further details can be found in the attached document General Information for Applicants or via the Strathclyde Pension Fund website
