Paying my premium

WorkCover Queensland

Paying your premium with WorkCover is quick, easy and flexible.

New insurance policies

You can pay your premium at the time of taking out your new policy. This can be done over the phone or online. You can choose to pay in full or set up a monthly payment plan to pay over time.

Pay your premium

Existing policy renewals

Your policy renewal is due between 1 July and 30 September. You can choose to pay your premium in full or you can set up a payment plan.

If you want to pay your premium in full, your premium payment is due by 30 September at the latest. However, if you declare your wages and pay in full by 16 September, you’ll benefit from a 5% discount.

All accident insurance policy holders are eligible for payment plans.

Declare wages and pay your premium

What if I pay my premium late?

Paying your premium late can affect your insurance cover. You’ll not only receive a late payment penalty, but you won’t be covered by your policy until payments are up to date (including penalty fees).

If you’re not covered by your policy due to late payment, and one of your workers is injured, you’ll be liable for their costs.

Explore the sections below for your payment options.

Payment plans are interest free, don’t cost any extra and make managing your premium costs even easier.

If you want to set up a payment plan for a new or renewing policy:

  • your premium must be more than $200

If you’re renewing your policy:

  • your wages must be declared by 31 August
  • your previous year’s premium must be paid in full with any previous payment plans finalised.

You can choose which day of the month your payment plan falls on (any day between the 5th and 25th of each month) and the starting month of your payment plan (either July, August, September or October).

You can change your payment date at any time if you need to.

Login to our online services to set up or change an existing payment plan.
