2000+ workers now enjoying the all new Protect App

March 21, 2018

It is only five months since Protect launched its new APP and in that time over 2000 worker members have downloaded and used this fantastic service.

The feedback about the App's functionality and ease of use has been extremely positive with members loving the ability to see if their contributions are up to date by simply accessing these details on their mobile device. Being able to lodge an initial claim via the App has been a real winner with those members who have needed to make a claim.

We have also had some very constructive feedback about what the App could do better and later in the year we will provide a new release to include this enhanced functionality.

The App is available from both the Apple and Google stores and can be found by simply searching for 'Protect Severance'. I you are already registered for our online Web services you can easily login using your member number and your current password.

If you have not yet registered for online services or you have forgotten your password, you can contact our member services staff on 1300 344 249 to register and have a password sent to your Protect registered email address.
