Watch the video

I can't get the sound to work on the video

In most circumstances you should be able to get the video to play with sound. However, not all computers are fitted with soundcards.

You can view the video with subtitles by pressing the 'cc' button.

The video won't load up

If you are having trouble loading the video you could try accessing it directly from the Vimeo website.

You could also check that your browser has up-to-date plugins to enable videos to play.

Is there a calculator I can use?

Yes. A calculator is available from the 'Forms and Publications' page.

It will give an illustration of how your pension may be affected by the reforms. The results shown are only estimates, based on your inputs and other assumptions.

I'm looking for information about the previous firefighters' schemes

Information about the Firefighters' Pension Scheme and the New Firefighters' Pension Scheme can be found on our main website at www.sppa.gov.uk. These were the schemes for firefighters in Scotland before the Firefighters' Pension Scheme 2015 launched on 1 April 2015.
