The City of London Pension Fund is part of the national Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)

If you join the LGPS you become a member and you will get a pension paid to you when you retire.

Members include people who work for the City of London Corporation, and a range of other organisations.

The LGPS is a statutory scheme. This means that it is very secure because the amount members are paid in retirement is defined and set out in law.

The pension scheme has approximately 15,000 members, with 1.1Bn in assets and 14 participating employers.

Teachers and operational staff in the City of London Police service have their own pension schemes and are not part of the LGPS.

Who runs the pension fund?

The City of London Pension Fund run by the City of London Corporation.

This means that the City of London Corporation is the "administering authority" in the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations.

The Corporation has set up a local government pensions board to make decisions and take responsibility for management of the fund.

Administering authorities must act in the interests of all employers, members and their dependants within the fund.

The role of the administering authority is very similar to that of a trustee.

The Pensions team at the City of London Corporation look after the day to day running of the fund.


This authority is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and to this end may use the information you have provided for the prevention and detection of fraud. It may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes. For further information visit
