If you leave your employment as a firefighter and you have enough service to qualify for a benefit, but you are not old enough to receive a pension and are not retiring due to ill-health, then you become a deferred member.
The sections below hold information about deferred membership in each of the current Firefighters' Pension Schemes.
Which scheme were you previously in?
You may get a Deferred Benefit Statement (DBS) each year.
The statement would show the current value of your deferred FPS benefits, without any reduction for retiring early.
