When you join the Scheme, you can ask to transfer any eligible previous pension(s) you have into the Fund.

If your request is accepted, the value of the transfer would give you additional pension or membership, which is used to give you additional benefits when you retire.

If you want to transfer a pension into the EAPF, you’ll need to do this within the first 12 months of joining by completing the transfer section on your New starter form. The New starter form contains more information on the transfer process and is provided by your employer when you start employment.

If you have other benefits in the Local Government Pension Scheme these may be automatically combined with your EAPF benefits unless you choose to keep them separate. If you’d prefer to keep them separate, you must let us know in writing.

You can also download a New starter form from our Forms page.
