Sports and Accidental Injury
BY EMILY MATTHEWS – FINANCIAL ADVISER AT FUTURE KEY FINANCIAL

I claimed over $7,000 from my insurance provider when I broke my leg playing footy. I didn’t stop working.

I’ve always been a very active person playing many sports including touch footy, AFL, tennis, golf etc. As I expose myself to potential injury on a weekly basis, it was a no brainer to take out sports and accidental injury cover with my income protection insurance.

A few weeks ago my team had our last Aussie Rules game for the season. Within the first two minutes on the field, I broke my fibula.

While I’m left hobbling around on crutches, I didn’t need to stop working as my role is office based. However, fortunately with my sports and accidental injury cover on my income protection policy, I met a specific definition to receive a payout from my insurance provider.

After submitting the necessary medical reports, I received a payment of over $7,000 the following week. This is the benefit of comprehensive personal insurance cover.

If you are an active individual, I highly recommend reviewing your income protection insurance. Particularly if you work in a manual occupation where an injury or illness could stop you from working for a period of time, income protection insurance is crucial to ensure your cashflow and lifestyle can continue throughout recovery.
