Police Mutual Pre-retirement seminars

At Police Mutual we’ll tell you what’s best for you, not what’s best for us!

When it comes to providing you with support as you approach retirement we’ve gone further than most.

This bespoke course has been designed specifically for Superintendents, is ideally suited to those officers with 12 months or less to retirement and is aimed at helping to ensure that you’re fully prepared for retirement both financially and emotionally.

However, we don’t believe that a course alone is sufficient. It’s too much to expect an individual to retain information they received up to 12 months earlier. This is why we developed the Retirement Centre to act as a ‘one stop shop’ for officers approaching retirement. It’s aimed at giving you an easily accessible, central resource of relevant information. The course will help you navigate this site.

We also know that, with plenty of other things going on as you approach retirement, it’s easy to forget to complete some of the preparations you had every good intention of undertaking. This is where the ‘Keeping In Touch’ activity steps in, providing quarterly email reminders of some of the actions you should be considering as retirement approaches. The course allows you to register for this support.

Retirement can bring huge changes to more than just your income. Our one day course covers lifestyle as well as financial aspects of your retirement and delegates are encouraged to really think about the retirement they want and how they can achieve it. The course itself is highly interactive with many delegates leaving having gained a great deal of value.

“It made me realise I didn’t know as much as I should”“Excellent course, very beneficial and certainly gave me food for thought”

Key areas covered include:

  • Coping with change
  • Understanding the Police Pension Scheme and your options
  • Financial Planning for Retirement
  • Investing your commutation
  • Life beyond the Force
  • Career Planning
  • Wills and Estate Planning

Passionate about Police Welfare
Life in the Police Service has changed a lot since we were set up in 1922. As policing continues to change, we’ve recognised your needs are changing too and have broadened our services to make sure we’re as relevant to the Police today as we were over 90 years ago, for more information visit www.pmas.co.uk
