The Scottish Police Federation represents all police officers in the ranks of constable, sergeant, inspector and chief inspector, police cadets and special constables; over 18,500 people, 98% of all police officers in Scotland.
The Scottish Public Pension Agency have advised that they are to post out this years Annual Benefit Statements to officers who were active in the Police Pension Schemes on 31st March 2018. They will be posted to your Home Address to arrive prior to 31st August 2018.
The statement gives figures as they stood on 31st March 2018 and will tell you
how much pension benefit you had built up, your current death benefits and Lifetime Allowance information (a tax for on large pensions).
The SPF has been working with Police Scotland Pensions Team and with the SPPA to make this an easier to read and understand document and we would welcome feedback good or bad to help improve it for future years.
Please keep this information safe as it will allow you to check information in the future and can be used as key information in the SPPA Police Pension calculator (the only official and reliable forecaster/calculator).
To find out more, please visit the Annual Benefit Statement section of the SPPA
where you can:
- Use a Police Pension Calculator to project future estimates.
- View detailed guidance on your statement, including case studies.
If you have any queries regarding your statement, you should contact the SPPA at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Scottish Police Federation are delighted to be supporting Maggies Penguin Parade.
The Maggie’s Centre, Wild in Art, sponsors, artists, schools and the community will come together to welcome 80 giant, individually designed penguin sculptures to the region during summer 2018. There will be a trail live on 29th June and will be live until 7 September culminating in a grand farewell event in Slessor Gardens on 22 and 23 September before a spectacular auction on 24 September 2018.
Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, social and emotional support for people with cancer and their families and friends offering a programme of support that has been shown to strengthen physical and emotional wellbeing. Built in the grounds of Ninewells Hospital the centre, designed by Frank Gehry, is warm, welcoming, and full of light and open space. It’s a place to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; a place where qualified experts provide emotional support; a place to meet other people or simply sit with a cup of tea.
The Maggies Centre costs £540,000 per year to run and the aim for the parade is to raise enough money to open the doors for a year.
SPF have been paired with Minecraft artists, 4J Studios and our sponsored penguin is based upon the Enderman character from the popular game. This also allows us a platform to promote digital safety and highlight the increasing amount of policing that we do online.
Visit our penguin in Dundee for additional content, giveaways and to maybe even an anonymous selfie.
