    ^The Retirement Reward Plan (RRP) reflects the current policy of the Board for determining which members of Avant are eligible to participate in the RRP and any Retirement Reward Dividends declared by Avant. The RRP is entirely at the discretion of the Board and no member will be eligible to receive a Retirement Reward Dividend until such time as the Board declares a dividend in favour of that member. The RRP is subject to change, suspension or termination by the Board at any time.

    *Not all members are eligible for a Loyalty Reward Plan (LRP). Members not eligible include medical students, interns, RMOs and DITs and members who have their professional indemnity policy purchased on their behalf under a corporate group arrangement. However, membership years as an intern, RMO or DIT will be included in tenure calculations. The provision of an LRP reward will be determined by the Avant Insurance Board’s annual assessment of the quality of Avant’s financial performance.

    **The discounts do not apply to previous or existing members of the Getting Started in Private Practice scheme and only apply from the first year a member becomes eligible and subject to eligibility rules. For the eligibility rules and full details, please read the Getting Started in Private Practice Member Eligibility Rules at avant.org.au/newprivatepractice or by contacting us on 1800 128 268.
