General insurers covered under the Financial Claims Scheme

The Financial Claims Scheme only applies to insurance policies issued by a general insurer that is authorised by APRA. The FCS does not apply to life insurance companies or private health insurance companies.

The list below contains the names of general insurers that are licensed (or authorised) by APRA and covered under the FCS. If your general insurer does not appear on the list below, you should contact your insurer to check whether they are licensed by APRA and covered under the FCS. In some instances, a general insurer will have a trading name that is different to the name of the licensed insurer they operate under. Although it will be the name of the licensed insurer (authorised by APRA) that appears on the list below, the FCS will apply to this licensed insurer trading under its own name as well as to any other trading name the licensed insurer operates.
