About the Scheme
Fife Pension Fund is part of the Scottish Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS Scotland). If you join the scheme and stay in it for at least 2 years, you will get a pension paid to you when you retire. Members include people who work for Fife Council and a whole range of other organisations such as local colleges, scheduled and admitted bodies. 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. Teachers and uniformed staff in the police and fire and rescue service have their own pension schemes and are not part of the LGPS.
