The Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 2015 is the occupational pension scheme available to operational firefighters first appointed on or after 1 April 2015.
Serving firefighters appointed before this date may already have pension rights in an earlier Firefighters’ Pension Scheme, such as:
- the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 1992
- the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 2006
Some of these firefighters will have been compulsorily transferred to the 2015 Scheme with effect from 1 April 2015, some will be transferred at a later date, and some will have the right to remain a member of their earlier Scheme until retirement.
More information is available explaining who will transfer, at what date, and how pension rights in the earlier Scheme will be protected:
