Membership and Policy Renewals Due 30 June 2013

09 May 2013

Your renewal invitation is in the post… When you receive your Renewal Notice, please check the details carefully to ensure it accurately reflects your details and medical indemnity needs.

Don't forget that your Renewal Notice also becomes your tax invoice/receipt upon payment and unless you specifically request one, a receipt will not be sent.

Proof of indemnity

Your Renewal Notice includes your Certificate of Insurance which can be used as proof of indemnity upon payment.

In addition, upon receipt of your payment, we will automatically post you a Certificate of Currency, or if you renew online, you can print your Certificate of Currency immediately after payment.

If you renew through a direct debit arrangement we will post your Certificate of Currency as soon as we've debited your nominated account.

Payment options

We have a variety of payment options to help make renewing by 30 June 2013 quick and easy. See  your Renewal Notice for details.

If you've previously set up a direct debit arrangement there's nothing further you need to do to renew. We will simply debit your nominated account with the amount specified on your Renewal Notice on or shortly after 1 July 2013. If you do not wish to continue the direct debit arrangement please contact us immediately on 1800 011 255 or email us at
