Insurance - Change of Broker

For the last 10 years JLT have been the brokers for Gymnastics Australia (GA) and its members. We have recently undertaken a tender process to review the risk management services for the National Risk Protection Programme (NRPP).

Following the tender process GA have appointed NEW BROKERS, Marsh Advantage Insurance Pty Ltd (Marsh) to manage the insurances.

We will be working through a transition plan with Marsh however any queries, claims or claim updates etc can be directed to:
•    National Phone Number: 1300 306 383
•    Email: gymnasticsaustralia@marshadvantage.com 
•    Claim Form: Please click here

The change in brokers does not change the Insurers i.e. QBE and Zurich and Chubb [travel] and Marsh have the authority to deal with all of our insurers.

The change from JLT to Marsh is reflective of the need to change brokers after a long standing and valued relationship with JLT.

Expiry of the Insurance 
As most clubs would be aware the insurances under the NRPP were renewed for a period ending 30/9/2017.

GA is currently working with Marsh on Liability insurance for the remainder of the year and 2018.

GA can assure that continued Insurance coverage will be in place for all affiliated clubs for the reminder of the year from 1st October 2017 until 31st December 2017. A copy of the Certificate of Currency (CoC) for this period will be available to all affiliated clubs who are part of the NRPP.

Details of how to access the clubs CoC will be forwarded to the clubs shortly.

Please note all other insurances namely Zurich and Chubb are current until 31st December 2017.

Make sure your Club is a part of the official History of Gymnastics in Queensland.
