USPA third-party liability insurance
Third-party liability insurance comes with membership. All USPA individual members, regular or temporary, have coverage for property damage and bodily injury liability insurance in accordance with all the terms and conditions of the policy. The third-party liability insurance does not cover medical benefits to the member. This insurance is valid for skydives made in accordance with USPA's Basic Safety Requirements and the Federal Aviation Regulations. Most drop zones assure that jumpers have this type of insurance by requiring current USPA membership to jump there. All claims must be brought in the U.S. or Canada. To report a claim, call (866) 585-4590.
Third-party liability insurance that comes with USPA membership does not cover members performing exhibition or demonstration jumps, as defined by the Skydiver's Information Manual. Special insurance is available for qualified jumpers (see below).
USPA demonstration jump insurance
USPA members can obtain insurance for exhibition jumps at an additional cost. If you have questions or need additional details on demonstration jump insurance, call (866) 585-4590 or click here for additional information and demonstration jump forms.

Life, Auto and Home/Renter’s Insurance, Plus Other Insurance and Financial Products and Services
For years, skydivers have struggled to obtain reasonably priced life insurance—and often can’t even get a quote—simply because they jump out of airplanes for a hobby. But that has finally changed. USPA has used its group buying power to negotiate on behalf of its members for life insurance, as well as a host of other insurance and financial products and services. USPA members now qualify for life insurance at preferred underwriting rates, not just the standard rates that skydivers have come to expect just because they jump. (You still must meet health requirements to get preferred rates.) There is no limit to the amount of coverage you can purchase, and every USPA member can receive a quote.
Through Insure Easy Life, USPA members and their families now have access to a one-stop shopping platform with dozens of products and services from the nation’s top insurance and financial institutions. Members can gain immediate access to life insurance, as well as health insurance, disability insurance, retirement annuities and much more. USPA has negotiated on behalf of its members for the best insurance rates, along with free unlimited telephone consultations with product specialists.
Simply visit the USPA member benefits platform here for a complete list of products and services and to obtain quotes.
USPA members now also have access to discounted auto and homeowner’s/renter’s insurance through MetLife. MetLife will provide quotes from several of the nation’s top carriers, with USPA’s group buying power earning members discounted policies. Discounts are available based on the number of years of USPA membership, as well as discounts for multiple policies, multiple cars and more. For more information and to get a quote, visit USPA’s MetLife website or call (877) 491-5087.
