Payment of Benefits
Your pension is paid in arrears in monthly instalments by Carmarthenshire County Council (on behalf of the Fire & Rescue Service). Lump sums by commutation are payable soon after your last day of service, subject to the authority having all the information it needs.
The FRS has discretion as to whom an award for a minor will be paid, but they must have assurance that it would be used for the benefit of the minor. Similarly, if payment is due to a person who has become incapable of managing his/her affairs, the FRS has discretion to pay it to another person as they think best.
If there has been a loss to the funds of the FRS because of fraud, theft or negligence on the part of a firefighter in connection with his/her employment, the FRS may withhold all or any of the sum lost (subject, in the event of dispute, to the order of a court).
