Insurance provided by ACTIA
The ACT Insurance Authority provides cover to all member agencies and organisations for all normally insurable risks with the exception of worker’s compensation, which is covered through Comcare.
Covers provided by the Authority include:
Details of the extent of these covers as they apply to each agency can be obtained by contacting the Authority's Underwriting Manager.
The ACT Insurance Authority examines the type and levels of risks faced by the Government agencies for which it provides cover, and sets the annual premiums to ensure that the costs of claims and losses incurred each year and the funds necessary to maintain adequate reserves are fully covered by the premiums.
While the Authority meets most claims from these premiums, part is set aside to purchase re-insurance to protect the fund against large claims and losses, or a series of such events, which could threaten the Authority’s ongoing viability.
Certificates of CurrencyFrom time to time, agencies may require certificates of currency to satisfy another party that adequate insurance coverage is in place for an event or display.
ACTIA is happy to discuss the requirements for certificates of currency with agencies and can provided certificates within 24 hours of request.
Contact the Underwriting Manager at ACTIA and provide full details of the event.
You can also apply for a certificate of currency from this website.

In estimating replacement values allowances are often overlooked for:
Remember that the sum insured should equal the full replacement costs of your property – this is not the price your property may fetch if sold. Replacement costs include not only the materials and reconstruction, but also the initial site clearance and any finishing touches and related costs.
Where a property is underinsured, a valid claim will not be met in full.
