Automatic professional indemnity insurance

Each day you work to improve the lives of your clients, and it is only fair that you are protected in carrying out that work. ASU members in the social and community services sector are automatically covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance.

This cover follows you no matter where you work in the community sector, including disability services, mental health, homelessness or youth services.

Our policy provides a limit of indemnity up to $5,000,000 for any one claim and $15,000,000 in the aggregate and cover for legal costs in relation to inquiries.

When you’re a union member, you can have peace of mind that you’re fully covered.

Journey insurance

ASU Journey Insurance is one of the many member benefits that come with your ASU membership and is an essential protection for you as a worker, protecting you on your way, to and from work. Our policy provides income protection while you recover from injury, and other benefits for details please contact your branch directly.

Most State and Territories automatically provide some level of journey insurance protection to all members of the community, however, people living in NSW and WA miss out. The ASU will continue to seek this to be available for every member of the community in every state.
