Welcome to the NI Firefighters’ Pension Scheme member section. This section has been developed to give scheme members information about the benefits and options available to them.

The information on this site is based on current scheme rules that apply. Changes to the schemes are going to take place in 2022 and 2023 to remove age discrimination found by the courts. The site will be updated in line with those changes when they happen.

You can find out more about these changes in the McCloud Judgement section.
