*The salary used to calculate the service credit cost is the highest rate of pay (Base Salary, A.K.A. Pensionable Earnings, as defined in FPPA Rule 101.05) for any calendar year in the plan. Typically this is a member's Annual Pensionable Earnings at the time of purchase.

The estimate calculated by this tool is based on the benefits for members in the Fire & Police Pension Association Defined Benefit System. This estimate is calculated using the FPPA website. It is based solely on information supplied by the member. The information used is not verified by FPPA and cannot be verified while this estimate is being prepared. The calculation may be revised periodically. The actual cost of service credit will be determined using actuarial factors effective on the established purchase date. In the event that any of this information changes, your benefit may also change.

The estimate provided assumes no previous service with FPPA, and is for normal retirement or vested retirement types only. The estimated monthly benefit is based on the Normal Option (Single Life). Additional Options may be available at the time of retirement. These estimates are intended for informational purposes only. Official interpretations or determinations are based upon the statutes and rules and regulations that govern these plans.
