One of our valued clients, Jodie, recently suffered an injury to her shoulder on a weekend when she was at home with her family. The broken shoulder forced her to take 30 days off work to seek medical treatment and begin the road to recovery. As Jodie is the primary income earner for the family and had recently commenced employment in a new job with little leave owing this situation had caused significant stress for her and the family as a group.
Fortunately under the valued advice of Katrina the Income Protection she had obtained a little under twelve months ago carried a specified injury benefit resulting in a claim being paid to her today of $15,778. This has enabled Jodie’s family to maintain their standard of living while Jodie transitions back into work as the injury is recovering.
