Can I transfer another pension to the FPS 2015?

What happens if you want to transfer another pension to the Firefighters' Pension Scheme 2015.

You are able to transfer other pensions in providing we are able to accept the transfer and you request to transfer in within the correct timescales. The timescales will depend on the type of pension you wish to transfer and you should contact the Pensions team for more details.

The value of the transfer will be used to buy service credits or earned pension (depending on the type of transfer received) in the Firefighters' Pension Scheme 2015 (FPS 2015) to increase the amount of pension you accrue when you retire.

If you are interested in transferring any pension rights from another pension into the FPS 2015, complete the forms below.
