Consultation description

On 1 April 2015 a new pension scheme will come into effect for firefighters in England.

The transitional regulations will cover the detailed transitional arrangements for those current firefighter members who transfer across from either the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 1992 or the New Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 2006 to the Firefighters Pension Scheme 2015, either on 1 April 2015 or in the subsequent 7 years.

The Firefighters’ Compensation Scheme and Pension Scheme (Amendment) Order amends the Firefighters’ Compensation Scheme (England) Order (2006/1811) to provide compensatory injury payments for members of the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 2015 who suffer an injury on duty.

It also amends the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (England) Order 2006 (2006/3432) in respect of special members of the modified section of the 2006 Scheme.
