Your pension is administered by the Local Pensions Partnership Administration (LPPA) Limited on behalf of the LPFA. LPPA administers many local government, firefighter and police pension arrangements throughout the UK. 

The LPPA website (www.lppapensions.co.uk) has a lot of information about your pension, including videos, guides and factsheets. You can also log in to My Pension Online, LPPA’s secure online service, to see your own pension details and update your contact details and death grant nominations. 

If you need to speak to someone about your pension, please contact LPPA, either through the secure ‘Contact LPPA’ form or through the Member Self Service portal ‘My Pension Online’.

You can also call their helpdesk: 0300 323 0260 (Mon-Thu 9am-5pm, Fri 9am-4pm). 

Postal address for LPFA members:
LPPA
PO Box 1383

If you have 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

If you have a question about administration
As an LPFA employer, there are certain tasks you need to carry out regularly, including sending member data to the administrator, Local Pensions Partnership Administration (LPPA).

To make this easier, LPPA has set up a secure employer portal, where you can manage your duties. If you have an admin related question, please contact LPPA via their online contact form or email them at: engagement@localpensionspartnership.org.uk 

You can also call their helpdesk: 0300 323 0260 (Mon-Thu 9am-5pm, Fri 9am-4pm).
