OnePath provides cover for AFL Players Association

Zurich-owned OnePath will provide total and permanent disability and death cover for the AFL Players Association after the group completed a review process.

OnePath will take over from Resolution Life in providing insurance, with the new arrangements, including improved cover for concussion, taking effect from December 1.

Zurich says concussion is a growing area of concern in all “tackle-oriented” sports and more research on the long-term impacts is coming to the fore.

“Core to our promise as an insurer is to provide coverage that’s appropriate to the needs of our customer segments and to provide support in any way possible at claim time,” a spokeswoman told insuranceNEWS.com.au.

“Cover for concussion is important for this group and we are proud to offer in this case.”

The OnePath cover is available through players’ superannuation, with individuals able to adjust cover levels, or opt out.

Zurich is already involved with the AFL Players Association and the AFL Coaches Association through the Tackle Your Feelings program which offers mental health training to community football clubs.

That program is in its second year of operation and has trained more than 750 coaches at 250 football clubs.
