The Order amends the Firefighters' Pension Scheme, as set out in the Firemens' Pension Scheme Order 1992, Schedule 2, as it has effect in England. The amendments include the replacement of rule A13, which provided for compulsory retirement at 55 for those of Station Officer or lower rank, and at 60 for those of Assistant Divisional Officer rank or higher rank, with a rule providing for a normal pension age of 55, whatever the individual's role.
