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.
From June 2012 a new scheme was set up by George Burrows which offers members over the age of 65-69 an opportunity to continue with the Federation Insurance Package. This is also available to partners if they were previously covered under the Group Life or Package scheme. The cover is available as follows:
|Best Doctors Family cover|
|Care First counselling service|
|RAC Motor Breakdown assistance||UK/European||UK/European|
|Mobile Phone / Gadget Insurance|
Please note: The travel insurance will continue to be available only as a stand alone scheme and will not form part of the above.
RAC motor breakdown insurance for personal cars and motorcycles is included for all serving and retired members and their partners who subscribe to the Life Assurance scheme (either stand alone or within the package scheme).
Legal cover provided by ARC for retired officers (either stand alone or within the package scheme).
