Non-practising Graduate

This membership category covers members who have not retired or completely changed career who need to ensure they have appropriate insurance cover for any claims made after their full GSR membership and insurance has lapsed. This can be part of a new individually sourced policy or the BASRaT run off cover that comes with the NPG membership. BASRaT would recommend run off cover for an absolute minimum of three years, statutes generally limit claims beyond this timeframe, however, under some exceptional circumstances, claims can still be considered thus making six years of run off cover ideal
