It is the responsibility of the individual officer to ensure the correct deduction is taken by payroll. If the correct payment is not taken, cover MAY not be provided.

Please note that if you go to NO PAY (due to sickness or maternity for example) your voluntary deductions will also stop, so you need to pay Phillip Williams direct to continue cover. Failure to make the due payment will result in you being removed from the scheme and all associated cover. Please contact the Federation Office for details.

Please note that from 1st January 2021 the insurers have imposed new Sickness/Personal Accident policy and travel policy exclusions relating to Covid-19 and variances. These can be viewed in the scheme documents shown here

** Student officers reminder ** If you have signed your authority forms for the insurance, as per your presentation, your deductions will automatically commence at the end of your free period. Should you wish to withdraw from the scheme please contact the office.

We've been arranging our tailor made Group Insurance Schemes for people in law enforcement since 1984 and have a reputation for providing excellent value for money and customer service.

Need more information or help? Why not call Bedfordshire Police federation office on 01234 842405 or Philip Williams & Company on 01925 604421 and find out more about this group scheme.

Due to exceptionally high levels of claims under the Legal Expenses section of the Scheme,  coupled with inflationary price rises, the subscriptions for Serving Members will increase by £2.60 per month and for Retired Members the increase will be £2.15 per month.  The Spouse/Partner cover element remains the same as does the cost of the Supplementary Life Insurance cost.

Through protracted negotiations we have made every effort to secure the best possible service and price for you, our member. There is never a good time for price increases, but we do believe that this product is still excellent value and the best money can buy.

Subscriptions cost is:

  • Serving Officer: £31.00 per month
  • Partner: £5.80 per month
