Sima Fu was a younger brother of Sima Yi, and for this reason he served the state of Cao Wei. It was said that although he did not have the extraordinary abilities of his older brother, he was well learned, able, and generous. Because he was well versed in literature, it was said that he had a close relationship with Cao Zhi, a son of Cao Cao.

After the death of Sima Yi, he served Sima Yi's sons, Sima Shi and Sima Zhao. When the rival states of Shu Han and Eastern Wu attacked Cao Wei, Sima Fu led armies against them despite old age, and played an important role in halting their advances.

When the Jin Dynasty was founded after the end of the Three Kingdoms period, Emperor Wu offered noble status to Sima Fu and all of his family, which Sima refused, saying "I am, and always have been, a servant of Wei."
