The London Borough of Barking & Dagenham 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 LBBD Council, and a whole range other organisations such as local colleges, charities and companies providing services to the Borough who have applied to be part of the fund. More than 20 employers allow their employees to join 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 have their own pension schemes and are not part of LBBD Pension Fund.
