All FULL Association members automatically qualify for membership of the Association Compensation Scheme. Normally, the first ten hives of any full member are covered FREE for compensation against loss by fire, theft, vandalism and AFB/EFB Disease. This cover is applicable only to stocks located in Scotland. Cover for stocks in addition to the first ten can be purchased on payment of an additional premium. This compensation scheme is separate from the Insurance Scheme, (details of which are given below), is financed entirely by the Association, and covers losses through Fire, Theft, Vandalism and AFB/EFB. Full details are available from the Compensation Convener. Affiliate and Family members may apply to join the Compensation Scheme; they pay £4.00 for the first ten stocks or part therefof (located only in Scotland), the same as full Members (£4-00 for each additional 10 hives or part thereof). The Insurance Convener has asked beekeepers to note that if they submit repeated claims (i.e. more than TWO) for vandalism to hives at the same location, having been advised to move them, they may be excluded from the Compensation Scheme.
All Full and Affiliate members are covered by the Association's Public and Product Liability insurance with the Sun Alliance insurance company. Members should contact the convener, or their local Association secretary, for copies of the leaflets which detail these schemes.
All enquiries regarding Insurance or Compensation should be addressed directly to the Convener. You will find contact details for the Insurance and Compensation Convener on the Executive page in the 'About' section in the main menu.
