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

If you join the scheme and stay in it for at least 2 years, you will get a pension paid to you when you retire.

Who runs the pension fund?

The Cumbria Pension Fund is run by Westmorland and Furness Council. This means that Westmorland and Furness Council are the "administering authority" in the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Regulations.

The Pensions Committee oversees the management of Westmorland and Furness Council and act as trustees of the Fund.

Governance arrangements for pension schemes in the public sector require Westmorland and Furness Council, as an administering authority for the LGPS (Local Government Pension Scheme), to have in place a local pension board.
