Please note several members have asked supplementary questions about our specific cover and herewith those details:

Insurance Documents for 2018

All fully paid (full) members are automatically covered by our Insurance (please note exceptions below)  – The Guild’s accident insurance is unique in that members receive £100,000 cover for accidental death or permanent injury anywhere in the world, whether working or not. The insurance covers accidents in helicopters, single engine aircraft and scuba diving– these are normally excluded from personal accident insurance policies.

For an extra £50 you may also insure a spouse or partner for the same cover.....and the same goes for Affiliate members, £50 will cover you for a year and you too may insure a spouse or partner.

NB. To be eligible for insurance from 2018 onwards members must be able to prove that they are either based in the UK or that they have some residency in the UK during the financial year and pay UK tax.  Full cover is for members aged up to 70.....for members aged 70 to 75 partial cover (details available from the office) is automatically available until reaching the age of 75 when all cover will cease.

Full details of the actual cover are explained in the 2017/18 document below


This feature is standard with all full memberships.
The primary cover it offers is film production specific with regard to death or permanent injury.

Always read the documents prior to claiming, as the details are important.
