Pre retirement courses

Retirement is something that you don't need to prepare for on your own. We're here to help you every step of the way - before, during and even after you retire.

As you plan for life beyond the force, our highly acclaimed, free retirement courses have been specifically designed to fully prepare you for making the key decisions that will define your retirement years. The courses, ideally for Police officers and staff within six to twelve months of retirement are engaging, thought provoking and specifically designed to help you consider all of your options.

Our free course for Police employees includes:

How to cope with change

Your Police Pension - commutation and your options

State Pension and taxation

Financial Planning for retirement - identifying short, medium and long term needs

Savings and investments - how to assess the level of risk you're prepared to take and match this to investments capable of delivering the level of returns you seek

Taking Financial Advice - The do's and don'ts

Second careers

Wills and estate planning

Health and wellbeing

Post Course Support

Once a course is finished we don't consider our job is done. At Police Mutual we fully acknowledge the importance of continued support as retirement approaches. This is why we've introduced a unique program of ongoing support, open to all delegates who've attended one of our courses, known as our retirement 'Keeping in Touch' program.

Keeping in Touch offers proactive contact in the lead up to retirement to:

  • Remind you of key decisions and actions you might need to think about
  • Provide you with links to tools and planners to help you prepare
  • Explore the topics from the pre-retirement course in more depth.

Finally, after the point of retirement we can offer you a range of guaranteed investments aimed at providing peace of mind for the DIY investor or, alternatively, access to fully impartial advice from our own in-house Independent Financial Advice team
