What type of insurance do I need? Where can I get insurance from?

Modified on Fri, 1 Jul, 2022 at 1:03 PM

At a minimum, a Public Liability Insurance policy is required. 

How much coverage do I need?

This really depends on your individual service. Please check with your industry association or body, or speak to an insurer.

Please note that some clients (especially corporate clients for bookings for offices, aged care, NDIS recipients) may require providers to have a minimum of $10m coverage before they award the job. So, having a higher amount doesn't just keep you safer, but also increases your earning potential as it opens the door to more clients and bookings.
