Planned maintenance: Please note EAPF Online will be unavailable between 09:00 on 30 October until 17:00 on 31 October 2019 for essential maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

In this section we explain what it means to your pension if you take strike action

If you're absent for a day or more due to a trade dispute, the period will not count toward your pension unless you elect to pay Additional Pension Contributions (APCs) to purchase the amount of pension lost during the period of absence.

The cost of purchasing the amount of lost pension for the period of absence must be met fully by you (unless your employer voluntarily make contributions to the APC). 

If you became a member of LGPS before 1 April 2014, you'll have built up benefits in the final salary section of the Scheme. If you choose to pay for the lost pension in the Scheme, the amount you pay will go towards covering protections associated with the pre 1 April 2014 membership. 

Visit our I want to pay more into the Scheme page for details about APCs.

You can also contact Capita for more information about paying APCs. See our Contact details page for the various ways you can contact them.

Your employer can give you more information about strike action where this doesn't relate to your pension. Please see your Employer's internal website for this information.
