Retained Firefighters Pension Settlement

In September 2013, SPPA consulted on draft amendments to Firefighters' Pension schemes to provide retained firefighters employed in a Scottish fire and rescue authority between 1st July 2000 and 5th April 2006 with comparable pension rights to those enjoyed by regular firefighters during the same period.

The enabling legislation came into force on 23rd May 2014.  The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) will implement an options exercise to provide eligible retained firefighters affected with an opportunity to join the new pension arrangements in due course.

In the meantime, if you think that you may be eligible, please contact Lauren Newall or Iain Shaw at the SFRS.
