Firefighters Pension Scheme
Section 17(1) of FOISA (information not held) requires the Scottish Public Pensions Agency to notify you if it does not have all the information you requested.
The SPPA does not have all the information you have asked for because we only have data from 1 April 2015, as this was when the SPPA took over formal administration of the Firefighter Pension Scheme.
The Firefighters and Police schemes were previously administered by eight different administrators.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the Scottish Police Authority may be able to assist you with information prior to 2015.

Below are all Male Fire members who have died in service since financial year 2014/15.
