Change in Subscriptions, West Yorkshire Police Group Insurance Scheme

You may be aware that the Government has imposed an increase in Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) from 6% to 9.5% with effect from 1st November 2015. This has unfortunately meant that subscriptions to the Group Insurance Scheme have to be increased.

£22.15 increased to £23.20

Serving + Spouse    
£29.35 increased £29.60 

£29.50 increased to £30.50

Retired + Spouse
£38.50 increased to £38.70 

In addition to the increase in IPT, due to the success of the new mobile phone insurance, from which a great many of our members have benefited, we have decided to amend the cover to include all partners of subscribing members. It was previously just for those partners who additionally subscribe to the scheme. This means a great many more people will benefit from the cover, provided in the same way as motor breakdown cover for partners. The separate subscription for partners has been reduced considering this.

Please find a link to the new Scheme Benefits Booklet showing the change to cover and new subscriptions. The Travel Insurance Policy issued last year is still valid for another 12 months.

No action is required on your part, however please notify us of any changes to your circumstances including beneficiary. It is also your responsibility to ensure the appropriate deductions are being made and that you remain eligible under the scheme.

Further details of your Group Insurance Scheme are also available on the Group Schemes section at or by using the QR codes shown in the Scheme Benefits Booklet.

Please do not hesitate to contact this office should you have any queries in relation to the scheme.
