The 1987 and 2006 Pension Schemes

These pension schemes are final salary schemes. This means that the pension payable to a retiring officer is calculated not by the financial value of his/her contributions, but by reference to the period of pensionable service and the final pensionable pay.

Police Pensions is a very complex area. The regulations governing there are reproduced on these pages for your information. For discussion and advice about how they relate to your particular set of circumstances, please contact the Federation office.
