The Amateur FA is on hand to offer referees advice on issues relating to Personal Accident Insurance (PAI), of which further information can be found below:

What Is Personal Accident Insurance (PAI)?

Personal Accident insurance is designed to provide compensation for players and officials following injury whilst playing, training and travelling to and from organised club activities. The club does not need to have been negligent for a successful claim to be made.

Benefits of such cover include quick settlement for injured players and officials which, in turn helps discourage no win/no fee courses of action and also illustrates that the club has taken extra measures to protect its players/officials. The policy can provide a range of weekly payments, and lump sum benefits for Accidental Death, Permanent Total Disablement, loss of limbs, eyes, sight and hearing.
