First Bus has many staff, former staff and their dependants who have pensions with the Local Government Pension Scheme in England & Wales (LGPS for short).
Until recently, these LGPS pensions were looked after by three different pension funds – Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire, and South Yorkshire. But First Bus got permission from the Government to simplify its LGPS pension arrangements and move all LGPS members under the umbrella of one pension fund – Greater Manchester Pension Fund.
This change took place on 1 November 2017, so now all First Bus LGPS members are being looked after by GMPF.
What does the change mean if you moved funds?
Rest assured the change has no effect at all on the pension you are building up or already drawing.
