When you become a member of the Fund, you are participating in a program that delivers peace of mind for you, your loved ones, and all your brothers and sisters in the Toronto Police Service. Since 1952 we have paid millions in survivor benefits to beneficiaries of Fund members. Our organization is one of the first in North America to support families this way. Benefits are available exclusively to members of the Toronto Police Service. In addition to a death benefit, we offer important services that help you protect your family, such as our will rebate program, access to lawyers, estate planning guide, and funeral assistance.
The Fund continues to ensure high value for low cost, through careful self-management, consistency and commitment. We use an effective funding formula that has not changed since our inception. All profits are reinvested in the Fund to maximize payouts to our members.
Our Board of Directors are current or retired members of the Toronto Police Service who know how precious family is, and how important it is to protect them.
Membership in the Widows & Orphans Fund is affordable and very competitive. Dues are paid through payroll deduction. When you retire, you receive a single lump sum payment (endowment), pay no more dues and continue to be covered with a paid-up life insurance policy. As the Fund grows, accumulated profits are used to increase benefits. If the benefits increase after you retire, your beneficiary will receive the increased amount.
Joining is simple. Complete the membership form and hand it in. If you have been with the Toronto Police Service for less than six months, you will not have to complete a medical questionnaire. We’ll look after the rest. You will see the first payment deduction on your pay slip. If you do not have a membership form or have any questions, please Contact at (416) 502-8711 and we are pleased to assist.
