Despite difficult economy Police Mutual (PMAS) payouts hold up

With interest rates still at all-time low levels, wider spending cuts in the public sector and other economic pressures, Police Mutual (PMAS) is pleased to confirm that payouts to its members exceeded £130 million in 2010. The current net annualised return for Police Mutual Regular Savings policies is 3.2%*, compared to basic interest rates of 0.5%**.

This combination of security and returns continues to be an important part of what we offer our members, together with some of the lowest costs in the industry.
