Section 38.847 of the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) mandated the creation of the Tempe Firefighters Public Safety Personnel Retirement Board. The purpose of the Board is to administer the Tempe Firefighters Public Safety Personnel Retirement System. In this regard, the Board decides questions of eligibility and service credits, and determines the amount, manner and time of payment of any benefits due under the system; prescribes procedures to be followed by claimants filing applications for benefits; determines the right of any claimant to a benefit, and affords any claimant or the fund manager (or both) a right to a rehearing on the Board’s original determination; distributes information (including annual reports) explaining and/or reporting on the retirement system to interested members/parties; and appoints a medical board to ascertain employee physical fitness.

The Tempe Firefighters Public Safety Personnel Retirement Board is composed of five members consisting of the Mayor (as chairman), two members elected from the Tempe Fire Department, and two citizens of Tempe. One of the citizen members is the Chairman of the Merit System Board. The two appointed citizens also serve on the Tempe Police Public Safety Personnel Retirement Board. The citizen members of the Tempe Firefighters Public Safety Personnel Retirement Board are appointed by the Mayor with the approval of the City Council. All members serve a four-year term. There is no term limitation for Public Safety Personnel per A.R.S. 38-847. (Arizona Revised Statutes §38.847)
