Consultation description

This second consultation on the firefighters’ pension scheme seeks responses from interested parties on the draft regulations which are to come into force from 1 April 2015. This consultation covers the provisions relating to membership and benefits in the new scheme, and includes new sections relating to the funding and valuation arrangements.

Further consultation exercises covering the governance arrangements of the new scheme and the transitional arrangements to apply for those firefighter members who transfer to the new 2015 scheme will follow shortly.

Before making regulations in exercise of the power in section 1 of the Public Service Pensions Act 2013 to establish pension schemes for fire and rescue workers in England, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government is required to consult such persons that appear to the Secretary of State likely to be affected by the regulations. A statement has been published listing those who would normally be consulted.

You can find more information on the firefighters’ pension scheme reforms page.
