This site has been designed to give members general information about the Lincoln’s Inn Staff Pension Scheme.
The Lincoln’s Inn Staff Pension Scheme (“the Scheme”) is a defined benefit pension scheme. The Scheme closed to new members on 31 December 2002.
This site is managed by Lane Clark & Peacock LLP ("LCP"), who administer the Scheme on behalf of the Trustees.
This website is intended as a guide to the benefits offered as part of the Lincoln’s Inn Staff Pension Scheme and is not intended to be a complete description of all specific benefits available. The Trust Deeds and Rules may change from time to time and the Rules override this website where there are discrepancies between them.
Covid-19: a note for pension scheme members
Message from the Trustees of the Lincoln's Inn Staff Pension Scheme
The Trustees hope that all of their members and pensioners are managing to stay safe and well at this difficult time.
In recent weeks the value of investments has been very changeable. The Trustees would like to remind and reassure members and pensioners that the benefits they have earned in the Scheme are not linked to the value of the Scheme’s investments. They are set out in the Scheme Rules, and the Inn is obliged to make good any shortfall, should one arise. At present the markets are unpredictable, the Trustees and their advisers are keeping the situation under review. If necessary, they will seek further funding for the Scheme from the Inn at the appropriate time.
If you have any further questions please call LCP on the number given in the leaflet (linked below).

Chairman of Trustees
Message from your administrators, LCP
During these unprecedented times, our top priority is timely payment of your benefits. Whether you’re receiving a pension - or about to start to - you can expect to receive your regular payments and any pension increases in the usual way, at the same time.
If you have a specific question or concern, you may find the answer in our leaflet. The Pensions Regulator suggests we point people to this recent note from the Pensions Advisory Service on how the Covid-19 outbreak may affect pension benefits generally.
If you are not sure who to contact, see: Covid-19 and your pension - where to get help.
