This service is available for active and deferred members of the Local Government Pension Scheme(LGPS) administered by Staffordshire Pension Fund and allows you to access information online relating to your membership. You will be able to check membership details and perform a number of benefit calculations. Brief details of the available screens are shown under FAQs below.
To use the system you must apply for an activation key. After you apply, it will be posted to your home address or emailed if we already hold a valid email address for you. If you have not received a benefit statement in the last 12 months or you have moved since the last correspondence from us, please send a signed letter giving your current address and tell us that you wish to use the online calculator to:
2 Staffordshire Place,
We will confirm the change ASAP (by e-mail if you provide one) and you can then apply for an activation key. Please allow up to 10 working days for the key to be sent following your request, although this will hopefully be sooner. In busy periods this timescale may increase.
Updates to the system
We are currently in the process of changing the web platform for the calculator, with a new platform expected to be live from September 2019. You may, therefore, have requested an activation key from the old system, but receive it when the new platform goes live. Do not worry - although the screens will look different, your activation key will still work. This is also the case if you registered to use the system under the old web platform and are now logging in again under the new platform.
To use the system
Apply for an activation key
If you have more than one active and/or deferred record in our scheme you will receive a separate key for each record.
When you receive the activation key, you will need to complete your registration. This will involve choosing a password and answer two lifestyle questions.
Important - Your NI number must be entered in uppercase e.g. PC000000A
Deferred members of the Staffordshire fund
Please note if you have a deferred pension record with the Staffordshire Pension Fund and are interested in drawing your pension early as you are over 55, the calculator is unable to carry out this calculation for you. You can, however, contact the Pension Team, to ask for figures.
There is a 3 month lead-in time for the payment of these benefits from the date of request.
