Equipment Insurance Just For You - PPA Today

Equipment Insurance Just For You

PPA was created by pro photographers, for pro photographers, and that has influenced us in all we do, especially our member benefits. For example, did you know about the $15,000 of equipment insurance that eligible members get for free? Did you know of the additional equipment insurance options available only for PPA members to purchase? We want to help you protect what matters, so read on...

What It Is
PhotoCare Equipment Insurance is an exclusive policy purchased by PPA for eligible members (U.S.-based Professional Active or Life members) and administered through Lockton Risk Services, PPA's exclusive broker. Simply put, we pay your premiums for you!

PhotoCare covers your cameras, lenses and other photography equipment, including computer hardware:
  • $15,000 of coverage (paid for by PPA)
  • Loss due to fire, theft or equipment breakage
  • Worldwide, off-premises or "on location" coverage
Keep in mind that PhotoCare serves as an "excess/secondary" policy when other insurance coverage is present. For example, if your camera is stolen in your home, first turn to your homeowner's policy to see if it will cover your equipment loss. If it's not covered by that policy, then that's where PhotoCare would step in!

How to Use It

Since PhotoCare is administered through PPA's exclusive insurance broker, Lockton Affinity, we cannot activate your policy on your behalf. You must personally log in to and activate the policy, which gives your approval for that coverage. If you do not activate it, you will not be eligible to file a claim.

Make use of the benefit created to help you, and activate your free policy now:
  • Log in to with your user name and password.
  • Look under the My PPA tab (top left).
  • Click on the "Yes, Activate My Free PhotoCare Equipment Insurance!" It will appear in the upper left corner of the page if you are eligible (U.S.-based Professional Active or Life members of PPA).
  • Follow the prompts to download a copy of your PhotoCare Coverage Certificate!
PPA members can also purchase additional equipment insurance coverage with PhotoCare Plus. Learn more at
