It was solved by a six dollar per week deduction, that’s tax deductible!
Whilst on a book off day, I fractured my foot at home. Having used most of my leave on other matters I was fortunate that only twenty two days prior, I had taken up an Income Protection Plan from WageCover Australia that my Union had brought to my attention.
I have a mortgage, my wife only works part time and I ride a motorcycle. As it turned out Wagecover was a blessing in disguise. Without Wagecover we would have been under financial pressure.
From the first phone call it was easy. The staff at Wagecover were extremely helpful and sincere. When they said they would ring me back in five, they actually did. Paperwork was minimal and benefits were truly 85% of my income. The fourteen day waiting period was covered by my sick leave.
I had six weeks to rest and recuperate without stressing about money. Thanks to Wagecover, I have peace of mind and know I’ll be well looked after in the future.
Once again, thank you to all the staff at Wagecover.
