As you may be aware, the Government announced recently that the standard rate of insurance premium tax (IPT) will be increased from 9.5% to 10.0%. Due to this, your monthly premiums to the Federation insurance schemes will increase with effect from 1st October 2016.
You can also cover your spouse/partner on the scheme, which covers Life Assurance, Personal Accident Cover, RAC Breakdown Cover, Mobile phone/Gadget Insurance and Critical Illness cover for an additional £5.87 per month.
Under normal joining conditions, members can insure a spouse within 3 months of marriage or a partner within 3 months after they have lived together for 6 months. If you fall within this criteria then simply fill out and return the Package with Partner Cover application form at the top of this page.
If you wish to insure your spouse/partner but do not fit the above criteria, the underwriters will accept spouse/partners at any time provided they meet the requirements of a health declaration. Under these circumstances simply fill out and return the Late Joiner Declaration form to add your spouse/partner to the scheme.
If your spouse/partner does not meet the requirements of the health declaration, and their health conditions are not likely to change, we will be unable to provide you with insurance. However, you can phone George Burrows on 01603 828 280, who will endeavour to arrange alternative insurance for you.
As of 1st July 2015, Serving police officers who have a partner that is also a West Midlands Serving Officer, may also extend the Spouse/Partner cover to include sickness (Regulation 28) insurance at a supplementary cost of £2.01.
