On 6 April 2006, the FPS 1992 became closed to new members. Active members of the FPS 1992 are those who have satisfied the membership conditions and joined before that date, who have not opted out of the scheme, and who have not had any subsequent break in continuity of employment.
To be eligible to receive a pension benefit under the FPS 1992, you must have at least 2 years' pensionable service.
If you work part-time, your service is adjusted to reflect its part-time length, but as a final salary scheme, your pension benefits are calculated with reference to your whole-time equivalent rate of pay.
As the FPS 1992 is now closed, a transfer of pension rights into the scheme is no longer possible.
