The Home Office does not hold information about the personal pension entitlement of any individual police officer.

Arrangements for the pensionable pay of chief officers on temporary promotion to a higher rank are set out in determinations made under the Police Regulations 2003. These state that after 28 days spent performing the duties of a chief constable, a deputy chief constable will be paid either a temporary salary (pensionable) at a rate equivalent to 90% of the higher rank’s basic pay or an honorarium (a non-pensionable payment) of an amount to be determined by the local policing body.

Pensionable pay is taken into account in calculating pension contributions and pension benefits, whereas any non-pensionable payments are not.
