Firefighter

Welcome to the Firefighters’ area of the Shropshire County Pension Fund website. We administer the Firefighters’ Pensions Schemes on behalf of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service.

There have been different variations of the Firefighters' Pension Scheme over the years; the 1992 Scheme, the 2006 Scheme and the 2015 Scheme. The Retained Modified Scheme also exists for special firefighter members who were offered the chance to buy back previous service and convert this service to special modified membership. The final scheme is the Firefighter’s Compensation Scheme which offers qualifying members a non taxable injury pension and a lump sum gratuity subject to meeting certain criteria.

All new firefighter members will join the 2015 scheme. However, the 1992, 2006 and Retained Modified Schemes are still available to protected and tapered firefighter members.
