The Harrow Pension Fund is part of the national Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)

If you join the fund you become a member and you will get a pension paid to you when you retire.

Members include people who work for Harrow Council and a whole range of other organisations such as local colleges, academies or contractors who have applied to be part of the fund.

The LGPS is a statutory scheme. This means that it is very secure because the amount members are paid in retirement is defined and set out in law.

Teachers and operational staff in the police and fire and rescue service have their own pension schemes and are not part of London Borough of Harrow Pension Fund.

Who runs the pension fund?

The London Borough of Harrow Pension Fund is run by Harrow Council.

This means that Harrow Council is the "administering authority" in the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations.

The Council has set up the Harrow Pension Fund Committee to make decisions and take responsibility for management of the fund.

Administering authorities have to act in the interests of all employers, members and their dependants within the fund. The role of the administering authority is very similar to that of a trustee.

Pensions Services at Harrow Council look after the day to day running of the fund.
