Pre-Retirement Seminars

For some time now Metfriendly have been holding regular pre-retirement seminars aimed at officers with 25 years service or more, at a variety of venues around London. These seminars are completely different to the 2 day courses held by the MPS at Empress State Building that many of you may have attended. Our seminars have been very well-received by officers and we have been delighted with the response, and the positive feedback we get.

The seminars are packed with important financial information for those who are approaching retirement and have big financial decisions coming up. They cover such areas as:

  • Police Pension Scheme
  • wills and estate planning
  • savings and investments
  • mortgages

We have expert speakers in all areas including the Federation’s Police Pensions Scheme expert Glenda Whitley who can guide you through such issues as:

  • opting out
  • lump sum commutations
  • tax implications

The seminars are relaxed and informal, usually running for 3 hours during an afternoon. There are refreshments served halfway through and a chance to ask questions or speak in more detail with the presenters at the conclusion.

It’s very important to be prepared and have a plan when approaching retirement so take advantage of this free Metfriendly service. Register now for your place on any of the upcoming Options Pre-Retirement Seminars.
