Offers you the chance to build up a valuable lump sum with no additional tax liability. It allows you to save long-term, perhaps for a deposit on a house, special holiday, new car or for a lump sum to put aside for a rainy day.
The plan is available to you, your spouse or partner. Upon maturity the policy provides a lump sum or provides a payment in the event of death.
By taking out a spouse policy, not only are you saving for a lump sum upon maturity, you are also insuring your partner's life for the duration of the policy.

How does it work?
It’s simple...To join the Saver Plan all you need to do is commit to save for a minimum of 10 years. We can deduct your savings contribution directly from your pay, and the more you save, the more you could receive when your savings plan matures.Each member of the saver 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 death.
Why is it tax-free?
Because it has a special tax status for Friendly Societies 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 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 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 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 of the policy, whichever is the greater amount, will become payable.
