Local Pension Board

As a result of the Hutton review into public pension schemes, the Government has introduced a number of initiatives to ensure that pension schemes are administered efficiently and effectively.

Since 1 April 2015, the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme has a National Scheme Advisory Board, and Local Pension Boards have also been established.

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Authority has a Local Pension Board, which is made up of Authority Member’s, employer and employee representatives:

Head of HR, Carol Swan is present at Board meetings as Scheme Manager.

When pension board Members sign up to the role, they commit to have the time, interest and understanding of the pension schemes in order to represent the scheme members, training is also provided to keep knowledge up to date.

The role of our Local Pension Board

The role of our Local Pension Board is to ensure that the firefighters’ pensions schemes are properly managed.

It provides scrutiny of decisions made by the Service in order to provide more assurance to taxpayers and scheme members. It is required to assist the Fire and Rescue Authority in reviewing how the Firefighters’ Pension and Compensation Schemes work locally, and allows the Board to look at the systems underpinning the local administration of the scheme, and how decisions are made.
