ASET Professional Liability Insurance

Universal Professional Liability Program by ASET

As part of your ASET membership benefits you are entitled to professional liability coverage (i.e. errors and omissions) protection.

  • Protection up to $50,000 per covered claim.
  • Protection of up to $5,000 for certain acts excluded by other insurance – e.g. disciplinary matters.

For some ASET members, this coverage is not sufficient, which is why we have introduced the NEW Optional Excess Professional Liability Insurance Program.
