FPPA: The Basics

The Fire & Police Pension Association of Colorado (FPPA) provides retirement, disability, and survivor benefits to Colorado police officers, firefighters, and other first responders. In addition to administering the Statewide Retirement Plan (SRP) and the Statewide Death & Disability Plan (SWDD), FPPA is charged with investing the assets of and administering the benefits for over 200 volunteer fire and local “old hire” plans. Over 29,000 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 first responders.
