Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
Our service to you
Foresters cares about the health and wellbeing of our members, customers, employees, and the community. As the incidence of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues, we also continue to monitor and adapt to the situation, listening to the advice of health authorities and the Government, and working proactively to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
We remain open for business. Phone calls are being answered by our staff currently in Head Office and financial advice is still being provided by our Financial Advisers. Rest assured Foresters employees are as committed to you, your family and your community, as we always have been.
In our offices, we are doing everything possible to ensure our employees stay healthy but still have the tools they need to service our customers’ needs. The majority of our employees are working remotely and those in the office, such as customer service teams, are practicing social distancing and following the precautionary hygiene measures recommended by health authorities.
You can still meet with one of our Financial Advisers by video appointment or home visit (when permissible and aligned with Government restrictions). You can continue to discuss your options with us at your convenience. Request a Financial Adviser appointment >
If you do have any questions our Customer Services teams are here to help and can be contacted on 0333 600 0333 lines are open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm.
We are here for our members and their communities and will continue to provide financial solutions as we have since 1874.
If you have an existing MyPlans account, you will still be able to continue to use it to monitor and manage your plans just as before.
If you don’t have a MyPlans account, but hold an ISA, Savings & Investment Plans, Junior ISAs or a Child Trust Fund with us, you can create one so that you can manage your Plan online.

Across global stock markets the spread of coronavirus initially resulted in an increase in volatility as investors focused on the likely impact on global economic growth. Whilst there are still high levels of uncertainty, and nobody knows how this will develop, global governments and central banks continue to provide support to help mitigate the economic slowdown. UK and US interest rates have been significantly reduced and many governments across the world, including the UK have announced unprecedented stimulus packages to support their economies.
During times of market volatility it is important to focus on your longer term savings objectives and avoid making snap decisions - read our volatile market article >
