AFPS 15 is introduced under powers held by the Secretary of State through the Public Service Pension Act 2013.

The scheme came into force on 1 April 2015. The detailed rules are set out in Statutory Instrument (SI) 2014/2336. Subsequent amendments are set out in SI 2015/466 and SI 2018/1111 . SI 2014/2328 sets out the Early Departure Payment Scheme rules.

This Joint Service Publication (JSP) 905 guidance explains but does not supersede the contents of that SI.
