Membership to the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 2015 (FPS 2015) is automatic for most firefighters though you have the right to opt out of the scheme at any time. However, if you are not a member of the FPS 2015, West Sussex Fire & Rescue Authority must re-enrol you into the FPS 2015 every three years.
To be eligible to join the FPS 2015 you need to be an operational firefighter.
If you are currently a firefighter with West Sussex Fire & Rescue Authority and would like to join or re-join the FPS 2015, please contact the Pensions Team.
If you email us, please add the phrase ‘I confirm I personally submitted this notice to join the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme’.
