Optical & Dental Benefits... 

We currently offer discretionary grants of up to £30 every two years per member for both optical and dental treatment, once the policy has passed its first anniversary. You’ll need to contact us before you make a claim, as these benefits are discretionary and, therefore, could be withdrawn at any time. Membership benefits are not regulated by the FCA.

How does it work?

You can claim optical and dental benefits based on all policies that have passed the first anniversary and are still in force. 

The minimum benefit is £10 plus an extra £1 for every £20 annual contribution made to policies. The maximum payable is £30.00 for each benefit per member. 

If you hold a single premium plan (ISA or Bond), you simply divide the premiums by 10 to produce an equivilent annual premium.

Annual Premiums (of all your policies over 1 year old) ÷ 20 + 10 = benefit (max £30) 


If you have a policy that you pay £5 per month to. The annual contribution is £60. Therefore £60 ÷ 20 = £3 + £10 (basic) =£13 benefit available. 

If you have a policy that you pay £25 per month to. The annual contribution is £300. Therefore £300 ÷ 20 = £15 + £10 (basic) = £25 benefit available. 

If you have a combination of policies that total monthly contributions of £50. The  annual contribution is £600. Therefore £600 ÷ 20 = £30 + £10 (basic) = £40 However, maximum benefit is £30. 

Dental benefits include check-ups and treatment and optical benefits include sight tests, glasses, contact lenses and prescription sunglasses. Original receipts will be required.

Don't forget all members can claim including children.

You can claim once every two years for both dental and optical costs.
