Retirement Seminars

Be prepared and have a plan when you’re approaching retirement.

These free seminars are regularly held at locations across Central and Greater London, for those looking to better understand their financial options when they retire. The seminars are different to the courses held by the MPS at Empress State Building that you may have attended.

“For the first time I now have clarity and understanding. A weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I’m genuinely grateful for your input.”

Who should attend

Seminars are aimed at Officers with less than five years to retirement. Spouses and partners are also welcome. If you’re Police Staff, we offer dedicated seminars.

What you’ll learn

The seminars are packed with important financial information for those with big financial decisions to make. The agenda covers:

  • The Police Pension Scheme (including opting out, lump sum commutations and tax implications)
  • Savings and investments
  • Wills, trusts and estate planning
  • Career options

“Metfriendly’s pensions webinar was both useful and informative. The presenters were really good and explained what can be complicated and complex matters, in a simple and easy to understand format.”

Who you’ll hear from

On the day, you’ll be guided through a presentation written in conjunction with the Federation’s Police Pensions Scheme expert. Speakers will include retired Police Officers, representatives from a team of solicitors and a careers specialist.

The seminars are relaxed and informal, usually running for 4 hours with a 30 minute break.
