Welcome to the Councillors section of the Gwynedd Pension Fund website. 

This area of the website is here to provide information for councillors who are contributing to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).

The Councillors Scheme continues to be governed by the 1997 Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations even though a new look LGPS was introduced on the 1st April 2008 for all other members. 

Highlights of the benefits provided by the LGPS are:

  • A pension based on your career average pay
  • A tax free lump sum on retirement
  • A Death Grant lump sum of 2 times your career average pay
  • Survivor’s pension for your spouse or civil partner
  • Children’s pensions for eligible children
  • Early retirement from 60 onwards
  • Ill health retirement

Detailed topics covering all aspects of your membership and benefits can be found within the links to the left of this page.
