The first document provides a range of benefit illustrations based on different scheme memberships, scenarios and salary profiles. The range of benefit illustrations should help explain the impact of the 2015 Remedy on members’ benefits. This communication does not constitute advice for members but is intended to provide information on how benefits are calculated under the 2015 Remedy.
The second document contains a detailed breakdown of the background calculations which may be useful for members who want to understand more about how benefits are worked out in the Firefighters' Pension Schemes.
