As you are aware, the GAA Injury Benefit Fund covers Adult and Youth members of the GAA. For the purposes of the Injury Benefit Fund:

·         an adult is a registered and paid member of the GAA who is 18 years of age or over on the 1st January of the calendar year

·         youth is a registered and paid member of the GAA who is under 18 years of age on the 1st January of the calendar year

You will note within the administration chapter of the Official Guide that Central Council may make arrangements for the provision of a Players’ Injury Fund forregistered playing members of affiliated units of the Association.   

The Injury Benefit fund applies to:

1.1   Players on a team registered with the GAA Injury Benefit Fund who incur accidental bodily injury while playing Hurling, Gaelic Football, Handball or Rounders’ only either in the course of an official competitive game or a challenge game or in the course of an official and supervised training session

1.2   Match officials injured while officiating at an official game of Hurling, Gaelic Football, Handball or Rounders’ as specified in point 1.1

1.3 Voluntary Coaches, team managers, selectors and members of official team parties injured during games or training as specified in 1.1 above

Important Notes regarding the submission of GAA Injury Benefit Fund claims for Unregistered Members

·         It has been brought to our attention that claims are been submitted under the GAA Injury Benefit Fund for players \ officials who are not registered playing members. Upon checks made via the GAA Management System (Servasport) alongside information noted on the GAA Injury Benefit Fund claim forms, we have uncovered cases whereby the claimant was not a registered playing member of the Association at the time of the Injury.

·         Willis Towers Watson who administrate the Injury fund claims have been advised not to process any claims where it is noted that the claimant was not a registered member at the time of the Injury as this voids the claim in its entirety. Such cases are been referred here for further investigation as claims of this nature should not be submitted under the Injury Fund.

·         All County Secretaries \ Officers need to check that all members of their county team panels \ development squads are registered members of the Association.

·         All Club secretaries \ Officers need to check that all playing members are registered members of the Association

·         As stated above, if it is established that a claim has been submitted under the Injury Benefit Fund for an unregistered member, no claim benefits of any description will be payable under the Fund. Please note that the GAA Risk and Insurance Committee will not consider any appeals regarding claims that are declined on the basis that the claimant was an unregistered member at the time of the Injury as it is a primary requirement of the Association that all playing members must be registered.

·         Should the GAA Risk and Insurance Committee deem that further action is required or sanctions imposed, they will notify the club \ County concerned accordingly.

We trust that you will inform your clubs of the above important information.
