Ten Year Savings Plan

Metfriendly's Ten Year Savings Plan is an excellent way of putting something aside for the future.

If you want a simple, long-term savings plan that you can’t dip in and out of then this is ideal for you.

  • monthly premiums start at just £25
  • you can save up to £300 a month
  • your savings earn annual bonuses and normally a final bonus on encashment
  • guaranteed lump sum after 10 years
  • your first £25 a month savings can go into a Tax Exempt Plan
  • Metfriendly does not pay tax on the income and capital gains made for the Tax Exempt Plan – so we can pay higher bonuses
  • after 10 years, you can get the total value of your plan paid to you or leave it invested with Metfriendly to grow

NOTE: You can request the first £25 of your monthly premium to be tax-exempt if you are not paying into a tax-exempt plan elsewhere. The tax-exempt part of your savings will be issued as a separate contract.

Where is my premium invested?

The premiums are invested in the Metfriendly With-Profits fund which is made up of equities, commercial property, bonds and cash. The example in the diagram shows the approximate “mix” as at 31 December 2016. For more information on how the with-profits fund works, please refer to How we manage the with-profits fund.

 

 

 

 

Can I cash in earlier?

Yes. The plan can be cashed in for a surrender value at any time. You can only cash in the plan completely – we will not permit part surrenders. Once you have been paying premiums for 6 years, the surrender value may exceed what you have paid in – but it could be less in the early years. The surrender value reflects our investment return over the period of your savings. On taking money out of either plan there may be tax implications – see ‘What about tax?’ in the key features document.

What if I change my mind?

We will send you a certificate showing your benefits and a cancellation notice. If you change your mind, you can return the notice within 30 days for a full refund.

How much will it cost for advice?
  • We do not offer or give financial advice.
  • Metfriendly does not make any form of commission.
  • The cost of providing verbal or written information about these plans is included in Metfriendly’s overall expenses.
