“One third of women and a quarter of all men will suffer cancer at some stage in their lifetime – over 60% of whom will live for longer than five years after diagnosis.” Source Cancer Council: Cancer in Australia: an overview, 2008 Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (published December 2008)
What if a serious injury or a serious mental or physical illness stopped you from working and earning an income for a period for weeks or months or even years? How would you manage to pay for your medical and or rehabilitation costs? How would you cope with employment changes?
What is it: Trauma cover or sometimes referred to as Trauma Insurance or Critical Illness cover pays a lump sum if you suffer from one of the specified trauma medical conditions or events such as a heart attack, stroke, cancer, blood disorders to name a few.
BENEFITS: It helps limit the extent of if not eliminate financial hardship so you can concentrate fully on recuperating and making any necessary lifestyle changes. The money pays debts, medical and rehabilitation costs and a lump sum to be invested to cover lifestyle changes, e.g. wheelchair access to be built at home.
