About Insurance for NSW

icare’s Insurance for NSW is the largest public-sector insurer in Australia.

We deliver best in class insurance and risk services to the government agencies of NSW by providing protection for more than 329,000 government employees and 82,000 volunteers. We also cover $193 billion of assets, including the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as well as critical government infrastructure like schools and hospitals.  

Our purpose is to support NSW government agencies and their employees, through our managed fund schemes:

We contribute to a strong NSW economy and better public services through the effective administration of these schemes.

Our client engagement, risk advisory and risk education functions help us support agencies to proactively identify and mitigate risks. We’re developing relationships with agencies so together we can build the capabilities to protect the people, assets and services of NSW Government. 

We also insure government construction projects, including the private contractors that help us build them, and we provide a safety net for homeowners in the event of builder default.
