All financial members of the SDA are covered by our free $80,000 Accident Insurance Scheme.

The SDA Accident Insurance Scheme is intended to cover you at all times when you are not covered by workers’ compensation. In this way, you have 24/7 cover: workers’ compensation while you’re at work, and the SDA Accident Insurance Scheme at other times. The buying power of more than 200,000 SDA members nationally enables us to cover you for free.

The SDA Accident Insurance Scheme covers you in the event of:

  • Death
  • Total incapacity to work in the job you were trained and/or educated to perform
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of limbs, sight or hearing
  • Complete tear of Achilles tendon, and
  • Other defined injuries as listed in the policy, when they are caused by violent, external and visible means outside working hours and are not attributable to an illness.

The benefits of the SDA Accident Insurance Scheme are not affected if you have other insurance coverage.

Please contact the office on 1300 SDA HELP (1300 732 4357) or email for an application form.
