Responsibilities

Per RCW 41.20, the Richland Firefighter's Pension Board is a five member, quasi-judicial Board that provides certain active and retired Richland Firefighters and their beneficiaries, with benefit services that are mandated by state law and the Richland Firefighters’ Pension Board Policies. The Board is responsible for policies, disability applications, approval of benefit claims, and oversight of the Firefighters’ Pension Fund.

Firefighters eligible for these services are those who, as a result of being hired before October 1, 1977, are members of the Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters Retirement System, Plan 1 (LEOFF1) and those who are pre-LEOFF, that is, those who retired before the March 1, 1970, effective date of the Washington Law Enforcement Officers' and Fire Fighters' Retirement System Act.
