Previously, NRL Victoria would bill clubs directly to cover all Personal & Accident Insurance Fees. Now, owing to a new national policy, that process has changed.
From now and moving forwards, you will need to pay a Personal & Accident Insurance Fee upon registration. This will ensure that you are covered for all training and matches and give you the peace of mind that you and/or your loved ones are covered.
This payment is required, and you won’t be covered or have your registration approved without making payment.
The Personal & Accident Insurance Fee amounts for Victoria in 2021 are;
So, when you go to register for season 2021, you will need to pay the relevant amount above, based on you or your children’s age. Once you make this payment, you are covered for the full season.
Your club is likely to still charge a Club Registration Fee, which could be separate to this payment; the amounts above only will come directly to NRL Victoria and is the minimum requirement you will need to pay upon registration.
Frequently Asked Questions (Updated 18th December, 2020)
What if I want to go to another club or move interstate once I’ve registered and paid my Personal & Accident Insurance Fee? Do I need to make this payment again?
No, you don’t. It is attached to your profile so the insurance will travel with you.
What if I paid, trained but didn’t play. Can I get a refund?
Yes, you qualify for a refund of 80% of the total Personal & Accident Insurance Fee paid if you have not made any claims.
What if I paid, trained and played. Can I get a refund?
No, once you have played you do not qualify for a refund.
Who do I contact if I believe I qualify for a refund?
Please contact your club who will in turn communicate with us to confirm you qualify for a refund for your Personal & Accident Insurance Fee. We will then provide you with a refund of 80% of the Personal & Accident Insurance Fee paid.
Please note refund only applies for Personal & Accident Insurance Fee amount; if you have paid extra as part of your Club Registration Fee, or for uniform or merchandise, you will need to liaise directly with your club.
There’s an amount showing upon registration called “Season Registration”, which is more than the Personal & Accident Insurance Fee – what does this mean?
This means that your club has asked for a portion of, or the total of the Club Registration Fee upon registration as a requirement. Your club will have their fees outlined on MySideline when you first select them during the registration process.
Don’t worry, the portion that you are required to pay for your Personal & Accident Insurance Fee will still come to us, while the remainder goes directly to your club. A reminder however that you will need to pay this full amount to ensure you are insured as payments, if set up like this, cannot be separated; speak to your club for assistance if required.
Should the participant take out their own Private Health Insurance or Income Protection Insurance?
We also strongly recommend players to review the Insurance cover provided by the NRL is sufficient to their own personal circumstances and that they should review this against their own needs for additional Private Health Insurance cover, Income Protection Insurance cover and Ambulance cover.
