Message from RA Vice Chairman – Enhancements to RA Insurance

To: All RA Members

Re: Further enhancements to the RA Insurance Policy


The recent March 2016 edition of the RA Newsletter advised all of you about major enhancements to the cover provided for RA Members under the RA Insurance Policy as from today:

 Personal Effects = up from £200 to £300;

 Referees Kit = up from £200 to £300;

 Dental cover = up from £200 to £250;

 plus other improvements and new Sections.

Well, the news has just got even better! We went back again to our insurance providers on your behalf and asked them to sharpen their pencil even further. As a result, we can now confirm the following two additional increases in cover which both take effect as from today:

 Personal Effects = now £350 (up another £50);

 Referees Kit = now £350 (up another £50).

Don’t forget that our Policy also encompasses physiotherapy (including injuries), rehabilitation, public liability, a constant legal helpline, funeral expenses, counselling, total disablement, medical expenses, victim support, hospitalisation, broken bones, plus other benefits and special offers.

These are subject to standard Terms & Conditions. We are extremely grateful to Paul Bentley from our brokers Spencer Hayes Insurance, whose hard work has produced such excellent results for you, our members. We are confident that the RA Insurance Policy is now the market-leader, offering referees the best cover and VFM in the country. But remember – it is only available to FULL MEMBERS of the RA. If you still think that any other provider offers more than we do for the same level of annual premium, then please show us the full policy evidence so we can investigate – we are determined that we will not be beaten!

Just a few points to bear in mind:

 these enhancements automatically kick in today under your current cover (30/09/15 – 29/09/16);

 there is no further action or payment of any kind required on your part;

 all the new cover levels will be carried forward for 2016/17, with the premium staying at £4;

 you are now getting “a lot more for not a penny more”;

 another example of the RA again providing “something for everyone”.

Best Regards,

Ian .
