What is Freedom of Information?

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act (FOISA) was introduced in 2002 to make the information held by public bodies more accessible. Anyone can access the information held by Scottish public authorities and the Scottish Public Pensions Agency has a duty to reply to Freedom of Information requests.

Where you can find out more

We have information below about how we work and the information we routinely publish, which has been developed in line with the Scottish Information Commissioner's model publication scheme.

How to make a request 

To make a request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act or the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations, please email the Freedom of Information Team.

If your request is about your own pension, please use our contact us website page.
