Increasing your Pension
If, as an active member of the FPS 2015, you wish to increase your retirement pension and death benefits, you can do so by making additional periodic payments or via lump sum.
However, there are limits on the amount of extra pension that can be purchased in this way. For the Scheme Year from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016, the overall limit is £6,500. (For any scheme year beginning on or after 1 April 2016, the overall limit is that which has been determined for the Scheme by HM Treasury and published before the start of the scheme year).
For further information regarding the purchase of Added Pension, please refer to the appropriate section of the Member Guide.
If you wish to pursue this option, you should give notice in writing to the Fire & Rescue Service.
