Other Types of Insurance Claims
If you become unwell or injured, it is important that you check whether or not you hold insurance policies that may cover you. These policies are sometimes built into banking or other financial products and clients are not aware of their existence.
If you become unwell or injured, are unable to work and struggling with your mortgage payments, you may be able to claim on the mortgage protection insurance with your bank or credit union. Mortgage protection insurance is usually taken out at the commencement of the mortgage facility and usually provides for a stay on your mortgage payments for a period of time.
We recommend contactint your bank or other financial institition to see if you have cover. If in doubt, contact our superannuation department for free advice.
Credit cards and insurance
In some instances, if you have a credit card, you may hold insurance in the event that you become unwell or injured and unable to make the repayments. It always pays to check with your credit provider to see if you are covered.
