Group 5 – Police Officers and Firefighters
Group 5 was established January 1, 2010. It requires that you and the union collectively bargain enrolment through an agreement and apply to the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees for approval. Participation is limited to police officers and firefighters.
Group 5 has a different pension formula and higher contribution rates. This means employees who are plan members earn a larger pension benefit than those in other groups for the same salary and service. This is valuable because police officers and firefighters can retire earlier.
