Insurance for NDIS Recipients 

If you are a recipient of the NDIS, you will have many considerations when it comes to protecting yourself and/or your business. The relationship between recipients of the NDIS and voluntary (non-paid) carers is that of employer and employee, so if something goes wrong, home and contents insurance won’t necessarily cover you.  

 

Insurance for NDIS Service Providers

On the other hand, as an NDIS service provider there are different risks you face that are relevant for your line of work and for which you would need cover.

In arranging certain NFP policies, Aon has binder agreements with relevant insurers under which Aon is authorised to commit such insurers to providing cover without reference to them. When acting under a binder we will be acting under an authority given to Aon by the insurer and will be effecting the insurance contract as agent of the insurer and not as your agent. Our binder arrangements with insurers are such that we remain your agent in the handling of any claim.
