2013-14 Insurance – Personal Accident

NSWTA Personal Accident Policy – 2013/14 Renewal

All NSW Trainers who have elected to have their insurance through the NSWTA will receive an insurance rebate as a result of these savings. Please ensure you are still a member of the NSWTA.

The rebate (expected to be around $50 per trainer) will be paid at the end of this insurance year to allow correct calculation of figures and to coincide with the time license renewal fees are due to assist with your payment.

Your new policy sees increased benefits on Capital benefits as well as doubling the cover on the Broken bone benefit.
