Renewing your Policy
You’ll receive a renewal offer prior to the expiry date of your current GIO Workers Compensation Policy, so keep an eye out for this.
To renew your policy, complete and submit your Estimated Wages Declaration Form. This estimate is used to calculate your premium and is to be returned by email or mail before your current policy expires.
Mail: GIO Workers Compensation, GPO Box B50, Perth WA 6838
GIO will then issue your renewal premium.
Next, you’ll need to complete the Declaration of Actual Wages Form, to provide the total actual wages you have paid during the previous policy period. This form is to be returned to GIO within 30 days of your policy expiring via email or mail.
Additional information on how your premium is calculated can be found here.
