***** A GREAT NEW BENEFIT FOR ALL FINANCIAL NUW MEMBERS IN NSW *****
The National Union of Workers, New South Wales Branch continues to lead the way in providing benefits to its members.
From October 1st 2012 the National Union of Workers, New South Wales Branch provides all financial members with Free Journey Injury Insurance.
As a result of the NSW government's recent changes to Workers' Compensation Laws in NSW, the majority of workers are no longer covered for injuries sustained whilst travelling to or from work.
The NUW does not believe it is fair that workers should be at risk of significant financial hardship as a result of simply travelling to or from work. This is why we have introduced Journey Injury Insurance to automatically cover all our financial members.
Under this insurance, an injured member is covered fro up to 85% of their normal weekly wage to a maximum of $1,200 per week gross, subject to a 14 day waiting period and a maximum 104 week benefit period.
In addition, the journey injury insurance provides cover for a lump sum benefit of up to $100,000 in the event of death or permanent disablement.
While this policy cannot fully replace the coverage previously provided by the NSW Workers' Compensation legislation, it goes some way in providing an income support safety net and greater peace of mind for all our members and their families.
For full details regarding this great new benefit, please speak to your Organiser, contact the NUW NSW Branch office on 9682 4622 or contact IFS Insurance Broking on freecall 1300 768 118
As well as the automatic Journey Injury Insurance for financial members, we are offering exclusive offers and discounts on Group Wage Protection Insurances and Private Health Insurances.
