Saver & Disability

Railway Enginemen's Assurance Society offers you the peace of mind and financial security should you be permanently removed from your duties because of a disability. Upon maturity the policy pays out a lump sum; or provides a payment on becoming permanently disabled (conditions apply); or provides a payment in the event of your death.

The Saver and Disability plan is a long-term saving plan that is an affordable way to save with no additional tax liability — giving you peace of mind that there is a lump sum put aside for a rainy day or in the unfortunate event that you are unable work through a permanent disability.

This policy is only available to railway employees with a Personal Track Safety (PTS) number.

How does it work?

It’s simple... To join the Saver and Disability Plan all you need to do is commit to save for a minimum of 10 years. We can deduct your savings contribution directly from pay, and the more you save, the more you could receive when your savings plan matures.

Each member of the saver and disability plan will be allocated a Guaranteed Sum Assured. This is the minimum amount you will get back when your savings plan matures, or earlier in the event of disability or death.

Why is it tax-free?

Tax-exempt policies from Railway Enginemen’s Assurance Society enjoy a special tax status afforded to members of Friendly Societies under current Government legislation.

So, if you save no more than £5 per week, for a minimum of 10 years, the Society is not liable to suffer tax on the capital gain or investment income arising from the Saver and Disability Plan, with the exception of tax deducted from dividends on shares.

 

 

 

What happens to the profits?

We share them out... In return for becoming a Saver and Disability Plan policyholder, you will automatically receive a share in the profits of the Railway Enginemen’s Assurance Society. Each year a Reversionary Bonus may be added to the Guaranteed Sum Assured – once added this bonus can’t be taken away.

Will I need life cover for the policy?

It’s included... As a Saver and Disability Plan policyholder you will receive built in life cover with your policy. In the event that you die during the agreed savings term, the Guaranteed Sum Assured or the value or the policy, whichever is the greater amount, will become payable.

Children’s Saver Plan

Offers you a chance to build up a valuable lump sum with no additional tax liability for your children in an affordable way. The plan is flexible so you can decide if you would like the savings to mature after 10 years, or when your children reach either 16, 18, 21 or 25 years of age.

The Children’s Saver Plan gives you the opportunity to benefit from savings with no additional tax liability — perhaps for your child’s further education, their first car, their wedding, or just the comfort of knowing that there is a guaranteed nest egg for them at the end of the savings term.
