Admission bodies fall into two categories:
- A body that has a community of interest with local government employers. It is a ‘not for profit’ organisation and is admitted to the Fund by way of an admission agreement.
- A company that has taken on work on behalf of a scheme employer by means of a contract or other arrangement and is admitted to the Fund by way of an admission agreement.
Employees of an admission body can join the LGPS if the admission agreement allows it.
