Police Pension Scheme


You pay contributions towards the cost of your pension benefits.

These are set as a percentage of your pensionable pay and the rates payable in respect of 2021/22 are shown below.

Your Pay Band Your Contribution Rate
Under £27,000 14.25%
More than £27,000 but not less than £60,000 14.25%
More than £60,000 15.05%

Please Note

Contributions are deducted from pay before it is assessed for income tax, so you will automatically receive full income tax relief at the highest rate you pay.

Pensionable pay includes basic salary, additional salary on temporary promotion and competence related threshold payments. Overtime pay, housing allowance and transitional rent allowance are not pensionable.
