The review conducted by the Department on the likely effect of section 10 of the Public Service Pensions Act 2013 on the Defence Fire and Rescue Service and the Ministry of Defence Police which was laid before Parliament in December 2013 included an assessment of the impact of a higher normal pension age (a key change brought about by the Public Service Pension Act 2013) on Ministry of Defence Police (MDP) personnel.

Defence Ministers are consulting colleagues about the issues raised by the review. The proposals put forward by the Defence Police Federation in respect of MDP pensions have been fully assessed and reflected in these consultations.

We hope to be able to confirm the future arrangements for MDP pensions shortly.
