Pensions calculator

Following continued lobbying by the PFEW, the Home Office agreed in June 2017 to provide a police pension calculator for officers to allow members to get an idea of their projected pension at retirement, to help them plan for the future. The Home Office launched the calculator in March 2018. Access the pension calculator.
