It is important to read the For your future leaflet and to seek advice before opting out of the LGPS.
If you do opt out of the LGPS and are entitled to a refund, your employer will usually pay this to you if you have been in the LGPS for less than 3 months.
If you do opt out of the LGPS with more than 3 months pensionable service but less than 2 years pensionable service and are entitled to a refund, your employer will pass us your request for a refund. Your refund will take account of any tax and national insurance (up to tax year 2015 / 2016) reliefs you have received. By law we cannot pay a refund within one month of you opting out.
