Professional Indemnity Insurance
HSU provides automatic professional indemnity insurance as part of your membership (if you are in a profession where it is a required). Professional indemnity insurance is designed to protect you from bearing the full legal costs of a law suit or coronial inquiry if there is an accident or you make a mistake at work. Your HSU membership includes cover for:
- Up to $10m for professional indemnity (any one claim, $70m in the aggregate)
- Legal expenses up to $50000 (any one claim);
- Cover is extended to private practice where the income earned is less than $30000 per year and the member is not operating a registered business.
It means you won’t lose your house and your savings defending litigation. An important feature of this policy is that it covers you no matter who you work for and where you work, making it beneficial for all workers, including casuals.
Your HSU membership automatically includes Journey Insurance which covers loss of income from injuries caused while travelling to and from work up to a maximum of $1000 per week and includes Death and Disability Insurance up to $100000.

ME Bank isn’t like other banks. It was created by industry super funds to help members of funds and unions get access to fairer, more customer-oriented banking.
Since then, ME Bank has widened its mission: setting its sights on helping all Australians get ahead. But the bank hasn’t forgotten where it came from.
That’s why it runs a dedicated program of offers, with new deals updates regularly, exclusively for members of unions and industry funds.
