Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)

The LGPS is a defined benefit (DB) pension scheme for employees working in local government. Members of DB schemes are promised a guaranteed pension income in retirement. This means that the financial risk of the scheme’s investment falls to the employers in the scheme.

For all general scheme information, please use the LGPS member website.

Pensions Online (member portal)

LGPS members can use Pensions Online to instantly access and manage their pension information. Currently you are able to:

  • access your annual benefit statements
  • update your personal details
  • review your nominations, years of service, earnings, contributions and transfers (if applicable)
  • run a retirement estimate (if you are 55 or over)

If you have benefits in both the Sutton Council and Kingston Council Pension Funds then you will need to register twice (once per Fund).

All other pension enquiries can be made by sending an email to skpensions@sutton.gov.uk or by calling 020 8770 5290.  Our phone lines are open between 1pm and 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).

The McCloud judgement and your pension

The Government has recently made changes to the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations. The changes are called the McCloud Remedy and are intended to remove the age discrimination found in the McCloud court case. 

Please see the member factsheet for a summary of the judgement and the changes the Government is making to the LGPS. 


If you are not happy with the way your pension has been dealt with (including the service you have received), please contact us on 020 8770 5290 to seek an informal resolution.

If you wish to go straight to the formal process or we are unable to resolve your informal complaint then you should follow the Internal Dispute Resolution Procedure.
