Important COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update: Reduced telephony service

To date, we’ve followed Scottish and UK Government guidance and taken the appropriate preventative measures to protect our colleagues and services. We’re well prepared for the spread of the virus and ready to continue to deliver core services.

To focus on this we’ll be temporarily operating a reduced telephony service with our teams responding to ill health, injury and bereavement enquiries only.

For employers: For any data related enquiries please log in to EDM online and contact us using secure messaging or SPPAEDM-Enquiry@gov.scot

For all other enquiries, please contact: sppacontactus@gov.scot

We’ll update our website when our full service is restored. The SPPA appreciate your understanding and patience at this time. A SPPA Covid-19 FAQ can be found here.  

There are currently, three occupational pension schemes for the Police in Scotland: the Police Pension Scheme (Scotland) 1987, New Police Pension Scheme (Scotland) 2006 and Police Pension Scheme (Scotland) 2015.

These schemes are statutory and guaranteed by law, providing pensions and life assurance for police officers in Scotland.

These schemes are administered by the Scottish Public Pensions Agency on behalf of Scottish Ministers and SPPA is also responsible for scheme regulations.
