LPPA Employer Portal
The secure employer portal is the one stop shop for submitting information about your employees to LPPA. Providing information to LPPA on time and accurately is not only your legal responsibility, it is also vital to ensure we can administer the scheme effectively and allows us to notify members of their retirement entitlement accurately. The portal can also be used to check the contacts we hold for your organisation and update us with any changes to ensure that we are able to communicate scheme news to you.
Cumbria LGPS SharePoint site
SharePoint is Cumbria Pension Fund's secure site for employers to upload monthly LGPS contribution information to the fund. It is also where we upload the FRS and P9A data so you can access this securely.
IRMP Application Form
