Your Police pension scheme contributions

The amount you pay towards your pension depends on how much you earn. Your contributions are deducted from your pay before tax is applied - meaning you get income tax relief on your contributions.

Police Scotland also makes a contribution equivalent to 23.1% of your pensionable pay into the scheme on your behalf. The current contribution rates for the various Scottish Police pension schemes are shown below.
