Injuries can be a drain on your finances, keep you and your family protected:

Covering a variety of scenarios

Cover applies whether on deployment, in training or off duty. This personal accident insurance can protect you and your family from the financial impact injuries can have. Please be aware, you won't be covered if you participate in professional sport.

War risks and terrorism

While on duty, war risks are covered except if they occur between major powers such as China, the USA and Russia. Claims that occur due to terrorism are also covered provided it is not a nuclear, biological or chemical attack.

Hazardous Occupations

There are no additional charges for hazardous occupations such as EOD or Special Forces but we do not cover criminal acts by the insured person. For flexibility, you can set up an armed forces personal accident insurance policy with us even if you are under orders to deploy.

Three policies to choose from

We have three policies to choose from, each with varying limits of cover depending on the injury. You can compare the three options below. Just note - self-injuries and injuries sustained while under the influence of drugs or alcohol are not insured.
