We act as the administering authority for the Somerset Pension Fund.
Peninsula Pensions is a shared service run by Devon County Council on behalf of the Devon and Somerset Pension Funds. It is responsible for administering the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS ) on behalf of Devon and Somerset County Councils and over 250 other employers throughout the counties; for example, District Councils, Colleges, Housing Associations, and so on.
Peninsula Pensions also administers the Police Pension Schemes on behalf of Avon and Somerset Constabulary and the Fire Pension Schemes on behalf of Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service. Co-ordination of Pension Fund investments is managed by our Investment Section.
For more information please visit the Peninsula Pensions website: www.peninsulapensions.org.uk
While the Pensions Administration Section administers the Local Government and Police schemes it does not administer the Teachers Pension Scheme or State Retirement Pension.
All queries relating to State Retirement Pensions should be referred to Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
Teacher Pension Scheme queries should in first the instance be directed to the Teachers HR Team please email email@example.com.
Each year we are required to produce an Annual Report and Statement of Accounts for the Pension Fund. This document sets out a summary of the scheme, principles and policies adopted, investment performance and financial statements.
A copy of the Pension Fund Annual Report and annual Statement of Accounts is in information and resources.
For more information about the pension fund investments or accounts please contact ASweet@somerset.gov.uk
