We also believe it is important that individual loyalty to our Association is recognised where possible and appropriate.
In keeping with this philosophy our Association has established four tiers of membership.
- Bronze 0-5 years
- Silver 5-15 years
- Gold 15-25 years
- Platinum 25 years or more.
We believe this approach ensures all members are financially supported when the need arises and also recognises loyalty. Access to each of the tiers is generally based on continuous service, however, your National Executive may at its absolute discretion waive this requirement under extraordinary circumstances.
You receive increasing benefits in relation to death cover and financial assistance for yourself and loved ones in the event of critical injury/illness.
The best part is, there is no additional cost – you’re already covered.
