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 to grow, we are monitoring the situation closely, listening to the advice of health authorities and working proactively to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
While these are challenging times, we are open for business. Phone calls are being answered and rest assured that Foresters employees are as committed to you, your family and your community, as we have always 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. Many 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.
Currently our financial advisers will not be undertaking home visits but will keep in contact with customers by telephone where possible.
We hope to answer your queries and requests as soon as possible and appreciate your understanding during this time. We are here for our members and their communities and will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.
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.
