Firefighters Pension Scheme Valuations

Valuations of the Scottish Firefighters’ Pension Schemes must be undertaken every four years to measure the costs of benefits being provided. Each valuation follows HM Treasury directions and regulations and are carried out by the Government Actuary's Department on behalf of the Scottish Government based on scheme data held at 31 March of the relevant year.

The latest valuation of the SFPS was based on scheme data as at 31 March 2020. The valuation has set the rate payable for the scheme for the period 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2027 and that rate payable by Scottish Fire and Rescue Service after deduction of payments made for ill-health retirements is 34.1%.

Under existing legislation the next valuation will be based on scheme data as at 31st March 2024 and will set the employer contribution rate for the period 1 April 2027 to 31 March 2031.
