If you joined the police pension scheme between 6 April 2006 and 31 March 2015 you became a member of the Police Pension Scheme 2006 (PPS 2006).
This section of the website is for members who have left the PPS 2006 and have not transferred out their benefits or received a refund of contributions. When you left we would have written to you to let you know that you have a deferred pension in the PPS 2006.
From 1 April 2015, the PPS 2006 was closed to new members. Officers joining after this date join the Police Pension Scheme 2015 (PPS 2015).
Deferred benefit statement
If you left the PPS 2015, 2006 or 1987 and have more than 2 years membership, you are awarded a deferred pension payable at retirement age.
You are entitled to a deferred pension if you are under age 55, have at least 2 years qualifying service, and you either leave or cease to be a member.

How your deferred benefits keep their value
Your deferred benefits are held in the Police Pension Scheme where they increase in value in line with the cost of living, until they become payable.
Your deferred pension may be paid early without reduction at any age if you have left Kent Police and you are permanently disabled for all employment.
PPS exchange of your lump sum
You can exchange all or part of your lump sum for an increased annual pension in the PPS 2006. Pensions for survivors cannot do this.
