NESPF provides a pension for employees of Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council and The Moray Council as well as around 50 other public or charitable bodies. Elected members serving as councillors are also eligible to join.
Teachers are not eligible to join the LGPS as they have their own pension arrangements. Likewise operational staff in Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue service have their own pension schemes. Participating employers should advise their staff what pension scheme they can join or belong to.
