We hope to have the CARE Calculator added to this page in due course

The remainder have not been issued due to a combination of technical issues and complexity. The outstanding statements cover Retained Firefighter members and those who have recently joined the 2006 Modified scheme. Every effort is being made to resolve these outstanding problems and provide those affected with their benefit statement as soon as possible.  

FULLY PROTECTED members will have benefits in the existing Final Salary scheme(s) and only those pension benefits will be shown on your ABS

All other members who are UNPROTECTED OR TAPERED will move to the new 2015 Career Average Re-valued Earnings (CARE) scheme(s) at a specified date on or after 1 April 2015. Where appropriate pension benefits in both the Final Salary and CARE scheme(s) will be shown on the 2016 ABS.
