Workability Insurance will help you to get back on your feet and earning again, if you're unable to work due to sickness or injury.
What is Workability Insurance?
Workability Insurance is designed to help restore your ability to work, supporting you with monthly payments if you're not eligible for ACC payments. It can also provide assistance with rehabilitation and retraining.
Workability Insurance benefits
Rehabilitation and retraining support
We'll help you get a plan in place for your recovery and reimburse you for your approved rehabilitation, retraining or support costs subject to policy limits
Short term support
Pays a lump sum if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness. You can use the money for your immediate care and help to plan a secure future for your family
Long term support
Pays you a monthly benefit once your short-term support benefit has expired and your disability means you're unable to earn at least 75% of your pre-disability income in a role based on your existing education, training and experience
If you need to change jobs because of your disability we'll reimburse you up to $2,000 for costs that come with you securing the new role, for example new work clothes, equipment or tools
If ACC declines your claim, or stops paying your weekly compensation we'll assess your claim under our criteria
We'll waive your premiums if you're disabled and you're receiving a Short-term or Long-term support benefit
Each year your sum insured can be increased without the need for further medical or financial underwriting
If you're younger than 55 years, you're not currently receiving a benefit under this policy and premiums aren't being waived, then you can increase your monthly benefit each policy anniversary by up to 10%. This can come in handy if you've had a pay increase at work
Premium and cover suspension
We can suspend your cover and premiums for a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 12 months if you meet the criteria
Optional benefits you can choose to include:
- Increasing claim
- Kids Cover
