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.

To all Georgia Firefighters’ Pension Fund Members, Retirees and Beneficiaries:
I want to make you aware that we have recently been informed of at least one instance where a Member was called and was asked to provide sensitive beneficiary information to the Fund over the phone. The caller claimed to be an employee of the Georgia Firefighters’ Pension Fund and needed this data to update the member’s file. I can assure you that we definitely did not make this call. The process of updating beneficiary information and other sensitive information is not something that is done over the phone. We are not sure how this caller got the Firefighter’s phone number, but we are looking into it. When we get more clarity on this, we’ll be sure to update you.
The Pension Fund does not share personal information about our members with others.
If someone purporting to be an employee of the Fund contacts you, please make sure to never divulge any sensitive information (social security #, bank account info, etc.) to that person over the phone. If you have any further questions about this, please contact our Operations Manager, Sharon Drake, at (770) 388-5757. If you have recently been contacted by the Pension Fund seeking sensitive information from you over the phone, please call me at (770) 388-5757.
