Police AVCs – Equitable Life payment scheme

Feb 1 2013

The Equitable Life payment scheme was set up to make payments to Equitable Life policyholders who suffered financial losses as a result of Government maladministration which occurred in the regulation of Equitable Life.

The government has appointed Atos to administer the payment scheme. Under the scheme's rules, Atos can only send payments directly to individual members. The Equitable Life Police AVC scheme is a group scheme, handled by individual police authorities.

Atos is setting up a process for members and former members of the Police group AVC scheme. If you think you may be eligible for a payment, you will soon be able to contact them directly to check. If you are eligible, Atos will ask you for an address and proof of identity before they can send you the payment.

Check the Equitable Life payment scheme website to see whether you could be eligible.
