The Tayside Pension Fund is part of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) in Scotland
If you join the LGPS, you will become a scheme member and you will get a pension paid to you when you retire.
Participating employers within the Tayside Pension Fund include:
- Angus Council
- Dundee City Council
- Dundee & Angus College
- Perth & Kinross Council
- Perth College UHI
- Police Scotland (non-uniformed staff)
- Scottish Fire & Rescue Service (non-uniformed staff)
- Tayside Contracts
- and a whole range of other organisations who have applied to be part of the Fund
45 employers allow their employees to join the Tayside Pension Fund.
The LGPS is a statutory scheme. This means that it is very secure because the amount scheme members are paid in retirement is defined and set out in law.
Teaching Staff and operational staff within Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service have their own pension schemes. These pension schemes are administered by the Scottish Public Pensions Agency in Galashiels.
