Welcome UFU members

Protect is currently supported as a fund of choice by unions including the ETU, AMWU, MUA and now the UFU. We welcome Victorian firefighters who are now eligible for Protect's superior income protection insurance.

Your coverage will commence once your authorisation form is completed and returned. If you have any questions about initiating your income protection please speak to your union or one of our Field Team and congratulations on joining over 30,000 Australian workers who entrust their financial security with Protect.

Stay tax savvy

September 04, 2018

Workers are offered the choice of two severance accounts. The default is our Termination Account which allows you to claim payment in a wider range of circumstances however the Genuine Redundancy Account provides for tax-free redundancy payments to workers, with higher claim limits.

For example, the Genuine Redundancy Account's tax free threshold for 2018/2019 is:
$10,399 for the initial year and $5,200 for each subsequent full year of service with your employer.

Knowing the different tax implications will help you determine the right account for you. Learn more at the Worker Area of our website.
