Retired DPF Members

Ex-DPF members have several insurance options available to them:

1.         Ex-members of the Group Insurance Scheme can remain on the scheme but with some reduction in benefits, provided they contact Philip Williams directly within three months of leaving the Force. This option is open to retiring members who will be in immediate receipt of a pension upon departing the force. Each case will be considered on its own merit so please speak to PW directly to clarify the benefits that you are entitled to. Please click here to download the Retired Member Continuation Form.

2.         All retired officers can apply to join the Philip Williams & Co Essentials Policy (Travel only). In addition, home emergency and motor break down cover can be applied to this travel policy at an additional premium. You do not need to have been a member of the Group Insurance Scheme prior to retirement, and you do not need to be a member of the ROA. 

Please contact Philip Williams directly on 01925 604 421 as this scheme is offered independently by them.

Please note you do not need to be a member of the Retired Officers Association  to qualify for any of these three options.
