The RFU has arranged Personal Accident insurance cover for referees and match officials working at RFU affiliated clubs and competitions.
Cover applied whilst refereeing or playing, including competitive matches and training, and you are also covered whilst commuting to and/or from a match that you are taking part in.
The policy, arranged with RSA, provides fixed benefit payments for death and permanently disabling or catastrophic injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury or spinal injury, caused as a result of an accident that occurs whilst you are taking part in the sport.
Cover is not included for sickness or injuries resulting from a medical condition. Cover is also not included for loss of income if you are temporarily injured. If you feel that such cover is required we recommend that you take out an additional policy that is appropriate for your needs.
