Many industrial agreements oblige the employer to cover their workers for income protection, sometimes called salary continuance. There are also provisions in statutory superannuation policies for income protection in cases of injury, and many workers unable to work often miss out on this benefit.
In this case
Aaron was injured in a weekend fishing accident and was unable to continue his role as a forklift operator in a brick yard, so was told he was no longer needed.
As the incident happened outside work hours, he assumed it was fair enough. All the same, he was under pressure to pay his mortgage, so asked an expert to review his situation.
An assessment of the matter revealed he was covered by an income protection policy. Had he not sought advice, he would have missed out on this benefit.
Workclaims Australia has a long track record of successful income protection claims.
