As you plan for life beyond the force, our 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

To find out more about the course please call us on 01543 305387

In those forces where we deliver pre-retirement courses, the booking arrangements are usually made by the force. Please contact your Learning & Development Coordinator for more details.

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.
