If you are a Councillor within Wales, and under age 75, you will be sent a letter inviting you to join the Pension Scheme.
When you receive your invite letter, you just need to confirm in writing you want to join the Pension Scheme. If you decide to join the Scheme you will need to complete an opt in form to become a member of the LGPS. When we receive your opt in form, your membership will start from the next pay date, and we will write and confirm you are a member of the Scheme.
