NUJ & SOA Members Professional Indemnity Insurance

Professional Indemnity & Public Liability Insurance: Writesure
Who is Writesure Designed for?

Writer is exclusively available to NUJ & SOA members and is designed for professional writers and broadcasters including authors, journalists, reporters, technical writers, script writers, and copywriters. The cover applies to work that you undertake as an individual and also as part of a joint project.

What Cover is Provided by Writesure?

The policy is comprehensive and covers Libel and Slander, Infringement of Copyright, Breach of Confidentiality, Negligence, and Liability to the Public. Cover is automatically included for documents which are accidentally lost or damaged.

What Types of Work Does Writesure Cover?

Cover applies in whatever medium your material is published or broadcast, including books, local and national newspapers, magazines, specialist journals, private publications, websites, TV, radio, video and film. Subject to EU Law, you are insured wherever in the world your work is published or distributed.

Tailored Cover

Writer is designed to be tailored to your individual requirements with a choice of levels of cover for the whole policy, and also for individual sections. You can even choose how much you wish to contribute to any claim.

Previously Published Work

While Writer cannot cover you for problems you already know about, the cover does apply for work you have produced since your NUJ membership started. If you already hold professional indemnity insurance, Writer will cover you from the first date from which you have been continuously insured, if this is before the date you joined the NUJ.

Future Liabilities

Writer also provides you with cover after you have stopped producing new work, for example if you retire or are unable to continue working due to ill health. The standard cover continues for 12 months after the end of the policy year in which you stop producing new material, but you can choose to extend this period if you wish.
