RAHS Insurance Scheme for Affiliated Societies
Insurance cover for Public Liability and Personal Accident/Voluntary Workers is available for societies affiliated with the Royal Australian Historical Society. After joining the RAHS, new affiliates will receive insurance forms, which can be used to join the RAHS Insurance Scheme. These group policies run from 4pm on 21 April each year. Full details of cover for both policies are available once the society wishing to insure becomes an RAHS member.

Public Liability/Product Liability
This insurance covers injury to members of the public (third party) and damage to third party property arising from the activities of the insured society. Cover can be for either $10 million, $20 million or $30 million. The policy excludes injury to volunteer workers of the society.
Personal Accident/Voluntary Workers
This insurance covers injury to any voluntary worker for the insured society. Cover includes:
Death and Capital Benefits – $150,000
Weekly injury ($500 per week) – Benefit Period (52 weeks) and Elimination Period (7 days).
There is no Permanent Total Disablement (PTD) cover provided.
Age Limit: 10 – 85 years
Volunteers between 86 and 95 years can be covered for a small additional fee. Some limits to cover apply and only five members in this age group are covered for each insuring society.
Note: the Voluntary Workers Policy is not a Private Health Cover. It provides specific benefits in the event of an injury sustained whilst acting as a volunteer for the Society. The weekly injury benefit only applies if there is a loss of income as a result of an injury sustained whilst acting as a volunteer for the society.
