Short service pension

Police Pension Scheme 1987 (PPS 1987)

You will be paid a short service pension if:

  • you leave service at what would have been the compulsory retirement age for your rank before they changed in 2006 and
  • depending on your rank, if you are age 55 or over with more than two and less than 25 years' service

The pension would be calculated in the same way as an ordinary pension.

If you postponed your retirement beyond the compulsory age for your rank, and you leave before you reach the new date with between two and 25 years' service, your pension will become deferred.
