We also have a shared service partnership with Lincolnshire Pension Fund, the London Boroughs of Hounslow and Barnet and a number of Fire Authorities for the administration of the Firefighters Pension Schemes. The Funds have a combined membership totalling 500,000. More information on this can be found on our website at www.wypf.org.uk.
