Federation retirement seminars

Your Federation recognises that retirement can present both opportunities and concerns for members.

The Federation has arranged a series of retirement seminars and is inviting you to attend one of the one day seminars here at Guardians House

Topics covered

Among the topics covered by the facilitators will be:

  • Police Pension Schemes
  • How to retire
  • Post retirement schemes for police officers (WMP Fed GIS, Benevolent Fund, NARPO)
  • Next steps (CV writing, transferable skills, starting a business)
  • Taxation/state pension
  • Investments and financial planning
  • Asset protection (will and estate planning).

We strongly recommend that you make the most of this valuable opportunity to shape your future.

The seminars are for members who are within three years of finishing their service. Please note that currently we are not allowing non-Force partners to attend.
