Trauma Insurance can help you cope financially from the impact of a critical illness event. Critical illness events include conditions like cancer, heart attack, stroke, coronary bypass surgery and blindness. It can be taken as a stand-alone product, or in conjunction with Life or TPD Insurance.
Trauma Insurance pays a lump sum, which you can use to pay for expensive recovery costs including rehabilitation. It can support any changes to your lifestyle as a result of your injury such as to refit your home to better accomodate your needs. It may also be used to enable your partner to reduce their working hours so they can look after you or, alternatively, to employ a qualified carer. Trauma Insurance may also pay off your mortgage or cover the cost of extra child care or housekeeping.
