Lincolnshire says it is unfair that members who choose to give up their careers or work part-time to devote themselves to their council have no facility to take out a pension.
Members are barred from the local government pension scheme, which is exclusive to council employees, and also face tax problems if they attempt to use allowances to pay into a personal pension fund.
MPs, in contrast, can use the Parliamentary pension scheme.
It says members should have access to the Parliamentary pension scheme, and tax law should be changed. 'This is an issue which should be addressed from the centre,' Lincolnshire assistant county treasurer Melvin Harrison said.
Council leader Robert Parker, who gave up his job when he became leader, said there should be parity with the private sector and national politicians.
He said senior board members of limited companies receive pension rights.
