Actuarial Factors for Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (FPS) - September 2008

The Scottish Government announced on 9th September that the revised commutation factors for firefighters in the FPS would be introduced with immediate affect. Fire and Rescue Authorities (FRA) have been informed of the action they need to take by Scottish Fire Circular 2008/14 a copy of which is available on this website. The revised factors are being backdated to 1st October 2007 and firefighters who retired from that date onwards will require their awards to be reviewed. FRA’s will make arrangements to contact those former firefighters who will be due a backdated award.
