There are different calculations for working out the value of your pension depending on when you were paying into the pension scheme:
The pension you build up during each of the above periods is calculated separately and then added together to get your total pension.
Career Average Pay is the average pay you received while you were a member of the LGPS.
It is calculated as follows; we take the pay you received each year while in the pension scheme and revalue it with the cost of living. Your revalued pay for each year is added together and the total is divided by your membership. This gives us your Career Average Pay which is then used to work out your pension benefits in the old career average scheme (pre 31 March 2015 pension).
