"I recently moved from one Council to another and unexpectedly found myself unable to continue membership of the Local Government Superannuation Retirement Scheme. LGEA assisted me in maintaining continuity of my membership and has also advocated changes to the rules governing the Scheme so other members may not be similarly caught out.” Margie Azmi, member since 1984.
