First Aid Courses and Kits

First Aid training is so important these days for you and your family.

Mortality Benefit

Money is made available to the next of kin of those members who lose their life through either accidental or natural causes.

The money paid from the Union’s Mortality Fund is made available to assist with funeral arrangements that can be very costly.

The amount contributed to the member’s next-of-kin is based on the number of years that individual has been a member of the Union.

Although this money will never compensate for the loss of a loved one, it does help make things easier for the family at this very difficult time.

The Union Mortality Fund commenced in 1951. It is a free benefit of your membership.



Many people die without even having a will. Those who die without leaving a will often leave behind their loved ones facing uncertainty, legal difficulties and more heartache.

Writing a will should be a normal part of life, such as taking out an insurance policy or joining a union.

Your will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign, for both you and your loved ones.

Because death is a natural part of life, preparing your will should not be stressful or create anxiety.

The SDA provides solicitors who can prepare your will for a discounted rate.

Contact the SDA office on 1300 SDA HELP (1300 732 4357) to make an appointment.
