Time to renew your WorkCover accident insurance policy


1 July 2023

If you have an accident insurance policy with WorkCover Queensland — covering your business for the cost of any work-related injuries to your workers — it’s now due for renewal.

This means you’ll need to declare your wages information to us before 31 August 2023, so we can calculate your 2023-24 premium.

What you need to declare

To ensure you meet your workers' compensation obligations, it's important to be aware of who you need to cover, and what payments you must declare as wages.

Use our Declaration of wages guide to help you determine what you need to declare, or get step-by-step help when you renew online.

Declare your wages early to take full advantage of our flexible payment options*, including:

  • interest-free monthly payment plans with deductions occurring on the date of your choice*
  • a discount** if you pay your premium in full by 16 September.

*Some payment options will not be available if you do not declare your wages by 31 August 2023.

**Discounted premium price cannot go below $200.

Interim Certificate of Insurance

You will have received an Interim Certificate of Insurance via email. This certificate covers you during the policy renewal period, from 1 July 2023 until 30 September 2023.

If you don't receive electronic communications from us, or you need to obtain another copy throughout the year, you can download your certificate online anytime:

While the Interim Certificate of Insurance provides coverage during the renewal period, you still need to pay your premium or commit to a payment plan to be covered for the full 12 months to 30 June 2024 and receive your full Certificate of Currency.

Save time and renew your policy online

The easiest way to renew and declare your wages is online. Set up a WorkCover Connect account for your business here.
