Being unable to work due to sickness or injury can be stressful for you – and your finances. Workability Cover kicks in if your condition is not covered by ACC – helping you get back on your feet with rehabilitation support and a monthly benefit while you’re unable to work.
With Workability Cover you can receive a regular monthly benefit that can pay up to 75% of your pre-disability income once you’re waiting period ends.
Help with a plan to assist with rehabilitation, retraining or support, to get you back into the workforce. You’ll need to stick to the plan, and follow the advice a registered doctor for any surgery, rehabilitation and vocational support that’s considered necessary, to keep receiving the benefit.
