Sheet1 Page 1 BACKGROUND: The Fire Fighters and Police Officers (F&P) Pension Fund is administered by a board of trustees which is comprised of nine members. The trustees consist of three police officers elected by the police membership membership All retirements are approved by the Board of Trustees. There are two general types of retirements service, and (2) disability. Length of service retirements are approved when requirements for retirement have been met and has been requested by a member. Disability retirement requires physical evaluation by three physicians (paid by the Pension Fund). The physicians' evaluations are provided to the Board for consideration regarding the disability request. The nature of the Fire and Police occupation dictates that there is a good probability that retirement results from a disability obtained on the job. Approximately 35-40% of the retirements are line of duty connected. Normal administrative and fiscal operations are performed by an Executive Secretary and an Administrative Assistant.
