What we do

The Scottish Public Pensions Agency (SPPA) administers pensions on behalf of the Scottish Government for Teachers, the Police and Firefighters as well as for employees of the National Health Service in Scotland.

SPPA also provides policy advice to Scottish Ministers on public sector pension issues and is responsible for developing the regulations for Scotland’s Local Government Pension Scheme – and for determining any appeals made by its members. SPPA also provides a pension calculation service for the Legal Aid (Scotland) Pension Scheme and the Scottish Parliamentary Pension Scheme.

We're keen to hear your views via our Member Survey.
