VMIA INSURANCE
The Victorian Managed Insurance Authority (VMIA) is the Victorian Government’s insurer and risk adviser.  The Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH) funds a suite of insurance products called the Community Service Organisations (CSO) Insurance Program for all incorporated U3As that are members of U3A Network Victoria.  U3A Wallan Inc does not pay for this insurance, but will receive Certificates of Currency each year confirming the type and level of cover we have via the VMIA online Portal.

A VMIA representative provided a presentation at the U3A Network Victoria Members Council meeting.  The presentation included statements about whether individual U3A members are covered by the insurances, which may have caused some confusion. It is important to note that our Community Service Organisations Insurance Program does not cover such things as buildings, contents, vehicles, cyber or your individual members. 

U3A Wallan committee to investigate the need to seek our own independent insurance advice, purchase insurance from a commercial insurer or have insurance from another source. U3A Wallan maintains a list of our volunteers and committee members to be covered by these insurances.

For more information, please refer to the VMIA Guide to Insurance for U3As and the CSO page on their website.
