Attention Volunteer and Combination Departments and Volunteer Members:

    Effective immediately, the Board of Trustees has decided to temporarily suspend the 8 hour per month group training requirement for departments with volunteer members in the Fund for the months of March 2020, April 2020, May 2020, June 2020, and July 2020.

    The suspension will remain in effect through the end of July 2020, at which time we will re-examine whether or not a further extension is required. Volunteer members will not lose creditable service for the months of March, April, May, June, and July due to a lack of training participation during these months. Any group training hours already accumulated through March 15, can be used towards the volunteer’s 2020 training total.

    If you have any questions, please email them to David Luther at luther@gfpf.org. Any changes or updates will be posted on our website. Thank you all very much for the service you provide to your communities.

The Georgia Firefighters' Pension Fund was established as a voluntary pension system in 1955 by the Georgia General Assembly, to supplement primary pension benefits provided by entities establishing fire departments.
