star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The consultation on the draft regulations has now concluded and whilst final decisions are still to be taken on the detail of the scheme design, representative bodies and the employers were informed on 9 July that the Department had decided to reinstate the offer made in June last year, regarding more generous actuarial reductions to the pensions of firefighters who retire between the ages of 55 and 57. The actuarial reduction rate applied to benefits accrued in the 2015 scheme would be 21.8 per cent at age 55, and 17.9 per cent at age 56, using today’s assumptions. This compares favourably with the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme 2006, where the reduction at age 55 is around 40 per cent, and at age 56 is around 38 per cent. All pension benefits built up by a member in their current scheme will be fully protected, calculated on their final salary, and can be taken on retirement from the member’s current pension age without actuarial reduction. On top of this, as set out in the recent consultation, our proposals include a significant reduction in employee contribution rates for firefighters transferring from the 1992 Scheme to the 2015 Scheme. Contributions for such a firefighter earning £29,000 a year will go down from 14.2 per cent to 12.2 per cent in April 2015.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Despite these arrangements, the Fire Brigades Union has continued with its campaign of strike action. Progress towards resolving this dispute remains entirely in their hands.</p><p> </p>
