Important changes to our insurance scheme

Given the challenges life throws at us - especially as police officers - a good insurance policy can be crucial. With this in mind, we're making some changes to the Federation Group insurance scheme to provide you with much more cover across a wider range of circumstances.

We have completely reviewed what's offered to our members with the help of our new insurance partners, George Burrows; they currently provide group insurance protection for over 100,000 serving and retired police officers in the UK.

From 1st May 2017, our scheme will feature new and enhanced benefits including £125,000 Life Assurance, RAC UK and European Motor Breakdown Assistance, mobile phone/gadget insurance, worldwide annual multi-trip family travel insurance as well as Personal Accident and sickness benefits. You can read a summary of the cover provided here.

Group insurance is included in your monthly Federation subscription which will be increased to £35.20; the group insurance element costs £17.20 per month, while Federation subs remain the same at £18.00 per month. Bearing in mind person-based RAC Breakdown cover on its own would cost £22.41* per month, when purchased in the open market, we think this insurance scheme is great value.

We're currently emailing all members about this change and will also send a letter in the post. If you would like your membership of the group insurance scheme to continue you don't need to do anything; the new monthly subscription of £35.20 will automatically be deducted from your May 2017 salary. If, however, you wish to cancel your membership of the scheme, email us at info@btpfed.co.uk by Friday 12 April 2017 to enable us to meet the cut-off date for payroll.

If you have any queries or need further information you can contact the George Burrows Customer Services Team on 01403 327719 or e-mail info@georgeburrows.com
