Support Pension Scheme

The Local Government Pension Scheme is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for Support Staff working at Liverpool Hope University. One of the main attractions of the LGPS is that it is also heavily subsidised by your employer who pays a large part of the cost of providing the benefits. For support staff at Liverpool Hope the LGPS is the Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF).

If you wish to contact Greater Manchester Pension Fund, please ensure you have your National Insurance number and contact them on 0161 301 7000 or mail@gmpf.org.uk
