The financial impact of not being able to work because of your brain injury can be significant.
AFRM Claims Advocacy (ACA) is working with Brain Injury Australia to help alleviate financial stress for those who aren’t working due to a brain injury. ACA have helped hundreds of clients get an insurance benefit payment, and may be able to help you too. It’s a free assessment.
Do I qualify?
Has your brain injury impacted your ability to work – even if it happened many years ago?
You might have personal insurance in your superannuation that could possibly owe you an insurance payment. ACA can help you check whether you can access this payment to alleviate financial stress.
Did you know?
- Personal insurance benefit payments are intended to support you if you are injured or become ill.
- To make it easy for you, ACA can find out if you are owed payments or not, based on your situation.
- You’ve most likely been paying for your personal insurance via your superannuation fund.
- You may be owed insurance payments, if your injury was recent, or happened many years ago.
- ACA’s initial assessment to find out if you are owed a benefit payment – will cost you nothing.
- Even if your superannuation statement reads “nil cover” you may have had cover at the time you stopped work – so it is worth checking.
- Personal insurance can still be paid even if you already receive payments from injury compensation schemes or are a participant in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
