The Oxfordshire Firefighter Pension Board

As a result of the changes to the public service pension act 2013 Oxfordshire County Council was required to set up a Firefighter Pension Scheme board to provide advice and support to the scheme administrator (Oxfordshire Pension Fund Committee).

The board is constituted of a minimum of four members and plan to meet four times a year to look at how the pension scheme is being managed and to provide advice and support to the pension fund committee around areas of compliance and best practice.

Both employers and employees are represented on the board with equal numbers.
