Am I eligible to join Metfriendly?

Traditionally our members have come from the London police services, however our financial plans are also available to members of all UK police services.

More specifically our membership is open to:

  • Serving, former or retired Police Officers
  • Serving, former or retired Police Staff
  • PCSOs
  • Special Constables and Volunteers
  • Met police contractors*

redImmediate family members of all the above groups, as well as their partners, are also eligible to join the Society.

Children’s saving plans can be taken out for extended family members including:

  • Grandchildren
  • Step Children
  • Nephews/Nieces

Holders of the Children’s Saving Plan are members in their own right and will be eligible to take out other savings and protection products when they reach age 18.

Unfortunately you are not eligible to join Metfriendly if you live outside the UK (and we cannot offer you new plans if you are already a member) unless you are on a secondment or career break and where the UK is your primary residence. ISAs are only open to UK resident taxpayers.

*An eligible contractor is someone who is based on Met premises and who possesses a contractor ID number. Anyone applying via a Field Officer need only show their pass to evidence this, however those applying online or by post will need to send in a photocopy or scan of it.

Very happy with the service. I have a number of policies for myself and my children.
