This is just one of the questions you may be asking yourself on the run up to your retirement from the police service. So, if you’re looking for information to help you answer this and any other burning questions you might have, start here.
There’s a lot to get your head around when it comes to police pensions, so it’s worth coming along to a Metfriendly pre-retirement seminar to learn more about your options.
Along the years, different police pension schemes have been introduced, which are outlined in our guide. At our seminars, there will be experts on hand to talk to you about the ins and outs of these schemes, allowing you the opportunity to discuss in more detail, what each one means for the amount you can expect your pension to return.
Then there’s the matter of actually drawing from your pension and deciding what might be the best decision for your personal circumstances. Use our guide to help you when you start to consider what the benefits and drawbacks of taking a lump sum might be.
If you’d like to find out more, book a place at one of our pre-retirement seminars in London or surrounding areas. On the day you’ll learn more about pensions, as well as hearing from retired police officers, representatives from a team of solicitors and a careers specialist, who can help you make those important decisions.
