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.

You may be buying:

  • Additional membership in the LGPS (facility removed from 1 April 2008); and/or
  • Additional pension via ARCs (facility removed from 1 April 2014)

Please note that these were historic facilities that have since been removed from the scheme. However, any elections made before these facilities were removed are able to continue for the term of the contract.

If you’re currently buying additional membership or additional pension via ARCs and you choose to stop paying for them, you won’t be able to re-start these contracts from a later date.

For more details about these options, read our Topping up my LGPS benefits’ factsheet.

Please note that any decision to pay extra contributions should be carefully considered and you may wish to take independent financial advice before making any decisions.

The Money Advice Service website explains the different types of professional advice available, and can help you find an independent financial advisor (IFA) in your area. Visit the Money Advice Service website.
