The Haringey 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 Haringey Council, and a whole range other organisations such as local colleges who have applied to be part of 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 and operational staff in the police and fire and rescue service have their own pension schemes and are not part of Haringey Pension Fund.

Who runs the pension fund?

The Haringey Pension Fund is run by Haringey Council.

This means that Haringey Council is the "administering authority" in the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations.

The Council has set up the Haringey Pensions Committee to make decisions and take responsibility for management of the fund.

Administering authorities have to act in the interests of all employers, members and their dependants within the fund. The role of the administering authority is very similar to that of a trustee.

Pensions Services at Haringey Council look after the day to day member and employer aspects of the running of the fund. The Pensions Manager is Janet Richards

Investment and financial issues are dealt with by the Council's Finance department.
