The Fund’s full name is the British Transport Police Force Superannuation Fund.
It’s a first-class pension scheme which provides retirement and life assurance benefits for its members. There are three sections:
As a Fund member, you receive valuable benefits including:
tax relief on contributions;
a pension which is paid for life when you retire;
The Trustee oversees the Fund’s investments, management and governance. Contributions are invested in a wide variety of assets which make up the investment portfolio that pays the Fund's benefits.
Many powers and duties of the Trustee are delegated to the Fund’s Management Committee.
The Management Committee meets quarterly and is made up of six employer-nominated representatives and six employee-appointed representatives.
Three of the employee representatives are elected by the British Transport Police Federation, two by the pensioners of the Fund and one by the Chief Constable (after consultation with ranks not represented by the British Transport Police Federation).
The Committee’s duties include monitoring the funding level of the Fund and considering applications for death benefit distribution and incapacity pensions.
