A recent case successfully decided by the Pensions Ombudsman means that there has been an increase of the Actuarial figures used to calculate commutation lump sums for officers that left the service between 1st December 2001 and 30th November 2006. The government has now accepted that payments are due to these officers and have issued guidance as to how this should be achieved.
Updates on this process will be posted here until such time as this matter is resolved for Sussex officers that are affected by this change.

Important Information Prior and Post Your Retirement
WELCOME to this area of the Sussex Police Federation website, kindly given over to providing information and contact to former police officers, particularly those that served with Sussex Police or its constituent forces prior to amalgamation in 1968.
The National Association of Retired Police Officers is a representative and social organisation charged with looking after the welfare of former officers who are in receipt of a police pension and representing those former officers in matters relating to their pension. A national organisation formed in 1919; there are currently 108 branches throughout England and Wales and a number in other countries throughout the world. Six local branches serve Sussex and further details of these can be found by following the links below. These six branches meet regularly throughout the year from which matters relevant to retired Sussex officers are taken to biennial meetings with the Chief Constable and similarly provide a forum to take matters to both Regional and National Meetings, most particularly the Annual Conference.
Each branch provides a means of contact with all retired officers subscribing to NARPO, especially those over 85 years of age, providing help and support in all matters of welfare and advice on benefits and contact with supportive organisations such as the Police Dependants Trust, the Sussex Police Charitable Trust and the Gurney Fund.
Various types of social functions, outings and meetings are organised by each branch, providing an opportunity to maintain contact with working colleagues. A full range of benefits are accessible both through this website under the Services tab and through the NARPO national website http://www.narpo.org. We also have a Facebook page which can be accessed here.
