(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the New Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (Scotland) set out in Schedule 1 to the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (Scotland) Order 2007.
The amendment is to provide a different rate for pension contributions payable by firefighter members of the New Firefighters’ Pension Scheme which increase according to the amount of pensionable pay which the firefighter member receives. The contribution rate which applies to a firefighter member is specified in the second column of the Table in Annex A1 in relation to the amount of his pensionable pay. The contribution rate which applies to a part-time regular firefighter is that which is specified as though that person had been a whole-time firefighter. Where there is a change in a firefighter member’s pensionable pay, the contribution rate which applies from that date, is that specified for the revised amount of pensionable pay. For the purposes of ascertaining the rate of contribution, the pensionable pay does not include any payments made for continual professional development, although these payments are included in pensionable pay for the purposes of calculating the pension contribution to be paid.
