The administration of the Local Government Superannuation Scheme (LGSS) is a matter for each employing local authority as an individual Trustee of the LGSS. 

In the particular case in question, the Scheme member should request the specific information from his/her employer with regard to his/her superannuation entitlements under the provisions of the LGSS. 

In the event that any Scheme member is not satisfied with any decision made by a Trustee in relation to his/her pension entitlements, the Trustee is obliged to advise such a person of the internal disputes procedures that are in place in order to have the dispute further examined.
