Consultation description 

We are consulting on amendments to the 1992 Firefighter Pension Scheme and Compensation Scheme which would allow surviving spouses or civil partners of qualifying firefighters to retain their entitlement to a survivors’ pension should they remarry or enter into a new civil partnership.

The consultation also covers proposed minor amendments to the 1992, 2007 and 2015 Schemes.
