Local Fire Pension Board

Northamptonshire Firefighters’ Pension Scheme Local Pension Board

The role of the Local Pension Board is to assist the Authority (Northamptonshire Commissioner Fire and Rescue Authority) and the Scheme Manager (currently the Chief Fire Officer on behalf of the Authority) by making sure it is administering the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme effectively and efficiently and, in doing so, is complying with relevant laws and regulations.

The Board does this by reviewing the policies and practises adopted and checking them against the applicable regulations, as well as comparing them to examples of best practise elsewhere. It is a slightly different role when compared to the (separate) Board charged with overseeing the Local Government Pension Scheme arrangements as the Firefighters’ Pension scheme is an unfunded scheme with no investment aspect.
