  • Police Officers Pension Trust Fund

    Description
    When you pay your property and casualty insurance premiums, you are also contributing to a special fund (State of Florida Chapter 185). This special fund provides enhanced pension benefits for police officers and firefighters. Each municipality creates a board of trustees, which is solely responsible for overseeing the trust fund. The Police Trust Fund typically meets quarterly at 7 a.m.

    Appointment & Qualifications:
    The Police Trust Fund consists of five members, two of whom, unless prohibited by law, must be legal residents of Surfside and must be appointed by the legislative body of the municipality, and two of whom must be police officers who are elected by a majority of the active police officers who are members of such plan. The fifth member must be chosen by a majority of the other four members. Each resident member must serve as a trustee for a period of two years, and may succeed him/herself in office. Each police officer member must serve as trustee for a period of two years, and each police officer may succeed him/herself in office. A completion of a Financial Disclosure Form is required by all members following appointment and is an annual requirement by all members of the fund.
