The Fire & Police Pension Association of Colorado (FPPA), established in 1980, is a political sub-division of the State that administers a multi-employer retirement system. Its purpose is to provide pension benefits as well as disability and survivor benefits to Colorado police officers and firefighters. In addition to administering the Statewide Defined Benefit (SWDB) Plan and the Statewide Death & Disability (SWD&D) Plan, FPPA is charged with investing the assets of and administering the benefits for over 200 volunteer fire and local “old hire” plans.
Through the years, FPPA has expanded to offer a Statewide Money Purchase Plan, Statewide Hybrid Plan, and a 457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan. Over 27,000 Colorado police officers and firefighters have some affiliation with one or more of the plans offered by FPPA.
FPPA is governed by a 9-member board of directors who are appointed by the Governor. The Board is made up of 3 member representatives, 3 employer representatives and 3 representatives from the community. This balance of power on the board is just one of the many reasons FPPA has remained a strong and stable pension system.
FPPA is proud to be a trusted provider of financial security for Colorado police officers and firefighters.
FPPA collects, invests, administers and disburses funds for the Fire & Police Members’ Investment Fund that was established under Colorado State Statutes. In general, FPPA plans are organized as displayed in the chart below.
The Fire & Police Pension Association of Colorado is committed to our members. We will prudently invest their retirement funds, administer benefits impartially, and efficiently provide high quality service.
