How to obtain cover
Taking out a WorkSafe Injury Insurance policy with QBE is simple. Choose from one of the following options:
Transferring your business to QBE
To transfer your workers compensation insurance policy to QBE, download a WorkCover Employer Transfer form, complete all fields and return to QBE.
Obtaining a cover note
If you are setting up a new business and require WorkCover Insurance, you can obtain a cover note by contacting us on (03) 9246 2444.
For a cover note to be valid, QBE must receive your application for a WorkCover policy within 30 days of when you requested the cover note. Your policy will be effective from the date you requested the cover note. Make sure you keep a record of when you applied for the cover note and when you applied for the policy.
Certificates of currency
A Certificate of Currency confirms that you have a current WorkCover Insurance Policy. You may be required to provide this before entering a construction site or if you are providing contract services to other businesses.
A Certificate of Currency can be issued on request if you have a current policy with no outstanding premium.
