Insurance premiums will increase for most types of insurance cover from 1 August 2020.

A range of factors mean that our insurer considers it is more likely that members will make insurance claims for some types of cover. The COVID-19 pandemic, the slow down in the Australian economy, and the temporary stand down of many Australian workers, for example, mean more members are likely to make an insurance claim. Insurers around the world have increased insurance premiums to cover the higher risk of claims being made.

Nobody likes price increases, and combined with the additional challenges our members are facing at this time, we understand this news will be disappointing. Please know that we have negotiated tirelessly on your behalf to keep premium increases as low as possible while ensuring you have the same level of protection. You also have control over the level of insurance you have and can change or cancel your insurance cover at any time.

You can find the premium rates applicable to your division below.
