What will my pension contribution requirements be during my period of DROP participation?

As an active employee participating in the Deerfield Beach Municipal Firefighters’ Pension Trust Fund you are currently required to make pension contributions in the amount of 9% of salary as defined by the Plan. Upon DROP participation, your pension contribution requirements from this plan will be reduced to zero percent of pay or $0. However, if you are still employed as circumstance of the transfer of service, you may be asked to participate in another retirement plan which will have its own rules and requirements including mandatory contributions.
