GB Employer and Injured Worker CGU Transition
Welcome to Gallagher Bassett!
It was recently announced that CGU, one of WorkSafe Victoria’s five workers compensation agents would be exiting the Victorian workers compensation scheme from 30 June 2021. WorkSafe has now informed employers and injured workers which of the remaining agents their policies will be transferred to, and the date of their transfer. Gallagher Bassett is delighted to welcome the new employers and injured workers who will become our customers as part of this transition.
If you’re transferring across to GB as an employer or injured worker with an active policy or claim, we will make contact with you within 7 days of the date of your transfer. We will provide you with further information about the transfer, including the best contact details for GB.
To help ensure a smooth transition of policies and claims, we will be working closely with your existing agent, as we’d like to ensure this transfer causes minimal disruption to the management of your claim/s. Please ensure you continue to liaise with your current agent until your transfer date.
We’re busy getting ready for the transfer to ensure our new customers are supported from day one, and that our existing customers are not impacted by the changes. Part of this preparation work includes the recruitment and onboarding of an additional 120 team members to support you, our customers.
On this page you’ll find a range of useful information, including a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), “If You Are Injured” posters, contact details and information on how best to submit correspondence.
We look forward to welcoming you to the GB family!
