Free Retirement seminars from Metfriendly for Sussex police officers

8 October 2020

Working in the police may well be the only career you’ve known. Do you know what to do with your finances and career when you retire from the police?

Come and find out more an “Options” seminar where Metfriendly will talk to you about to expect and what you can do to approach your police retirement with confidence.

Metfriendly has been helping officers since 1893 and is owned by its Police family members, so everything it does has your best interests at the very heart.

Learn about:

  • What your pension is likely to provide
  • Financial planning implications to consider such as wills, Lasting Power of Attorney, inheritance tax planning, trusts and estate planning (delivered by independent firm Lifetime Solicitors)
  • What to expect if you're looking for a new career

If you’re less than 5 years away from retiring from the Police Service, it’s not too early to start thinking about your options.
