Contacting us

Your LPFA pension is administered by the Local Pensions Partnership Administration (LPPA). All queries related to your pension, from updating your personal details to requesting a valuation or a transfer, should be sent to LPPA. You can contact them by:

  • calling the LPPA helpdesk on 0300 323 0260 (Mon-Thu 9am-5pm, Fri 9am-4pm)
  • filling in the online contact form on the LPPA website 
  • logging in to your account on LPPA's member portal, Pensions Point
  • writing to LPPA, PO Box 1383, Preston, PR2 0WR


Making a complaint

  • If you are unhappy with the way your pension has been managed, your first step is to contact LPPA. They’ve set out their complaints procedure on their website.
  • Ultimately, as an LGPS member, you have the right to have your complaint independently reviewed under the Internal Dispute Resolution Procedure (IDRP). An employee guide to the Internal Dispute Resolution Procedure is available in our Library, under ‘Our policies & procedures’. 
  • If you remain unhappy following the response to your complaint, the Pensions Ombudsman offers a free, impartial service to pension scheme members. Call 0800 917 4487 or contact them here
