The NSW Emergency Services Levy

The NSW Emergency Services Levy explained

To ensure you’re informed, here is some helpful information on the NSW Emergency Services Levy (ESL).

What is the ESL?

The ESL is a regular contribution towards emergency service agencies in NSW. Like other insurers, we collect the ESL on behalf of the NSW Government.

The ESL is added to your insurance payments each year. Once collected, your ESL contribution then goes toward funding emergency services in NSW like Fire and Rescue NSW, NSW Rural Fire Service, and NSW State Emergency Services, where it helps to keep our community safe during times of urgent need.

What kinds of insurance include ESL?

ESL is collected each financial year as part of home, landlord and motor insurance payments.
