Scheme Manager Discretions - Firefighters Pension Scheme (V2 - issued October 2017)

Please note: The Firefighters’ Pension Scheme Regulations 2014 set out fifty-two pension discretions available to the Authority to consider. An immediate position was required on three pension discretions within the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (England) Regulations 2014 (Regulations 5, 17 and 111) and an agreed position was made by the Fire Authority on 10 June 2015. The agreed position on these discretions has not been amended and the remaining forty-nine pension discretions were added to the Scheme Manager Pension Discretions document, therefore bringing together all the discretionary elements as contained within the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (England) Regulations 2014. Version two of the Scheme Manager Pension Discretions was agreed by the Fire Authority on 17 October 2017. 

In line with good practice, during 2018 the existing pension discretions for the Firefighters’ Pension Schemes 1992 and 2006, along with the Local Government Pension Scheme pension discretions will be reviewed.
