We require this cover to incept (start) on: -
Enter the date that you require this new Indemnity Insurance Cover to start.
Please ensure that if you have cover in place currently (or cover that has lapsed recently - less than 2 months ago on the CFP SACNASP Scheme policy) that this policy incepts from the day after the expiry date of you expiring policy. You should not leave any "gaps" in your cover as doing so could result in your forfeiting any retroactive cover that you are entitled to by virtue of your previous cover. If you are moving from another policy and your cover has lapsed, we would recommend that you purchase retroactive cover but please be aware that retroactive cover is not a gap infill.
Retroactive Cover required
I confirm that I have read and understood the contents of the document SPIIS Master Policy Document and Notes - General: Notes on claims-made and retroactive cover .    ?

Gaps in Indemnity Cover - Please select one of these options:

Option 1: I confirm that there are no gaps between my previous professional indemnity that is expiring and the date that I would like this cover to incept from.

Option 2: The company's previous insurance lapsed and there is therefore a gap in cover between this cover and the previous insurance that we had in place. Furthermore, I understand that, we have lost all the retroactive cover and that we are therefore not entitled to any retroactive cover under the SPIIS policy unless we choose to purchase retroactive cover under the SPIIS policy. I understand that a gap of even one day will cause the loss of all retroactive cover.

Option 3: I have never had insurance before.

Retroactive [backdated] cover should be taken out if you have been rendering services in the past without any cover in place or if there has been a ‘gap’ in your cover. If you have had existing cover on our SACNASP scheme policy the gap can be no longer than 2 months but if you have had other cover you cannot have a gap at all.

Please will you phone us to discuss this if you are not sure whether or not you need retroactive cover.

It is important to note that even if you do take out retroactive cover it will not cover you for claims arising from incidents that you are already aware of or which you should reasonably be aware of that could lead to a claim or complaint against you.

Please keep copies of your previous insurance certificates or policy schedules as proof of your retroactive cover entitlement.

I would like to purchase Retroactive Cover and understand that the annual premiums will be loaded by the percentage/value indicated in order to include this cover: 1 years retroactive cover – 20% per SACNASP registered member
2 years retroactive cover – 25% per SACNASP registered member
3 years retroactive cover – 30% per SACNASP registered member
I do not require any retroactive cover
