Jury service

If you are called for jury service, you will continue to have full LGPS membership, but you must pay pension contributions based upon your normal pay.

Reserve forces special leave

LGPS membership continues in full throughout, and you will continue to pay pension contributions on your forces pay if it equals or exceeds your normal pay.

If your forces pay is less than your normal pay, you will not have to make contributions and your benefits will not be affected.


Absence from work as a result of strike does not count as membership of the LGPS.

You have the option to buy back the lost membership.
