They’ve looked after me like gold

They’ve looked after me like gold

"I was off work for eight weeks so if I didn’t have my Protect income protection I would have been stuffed."

Tramways Union member, Paul McNeil found himself in a tough position recently, severely breaking his hand.

“I was off work for eight weeks so if I didn’t have my income protection I would have been stuffed.”

“One of the Field Team came out to our work about a year ago and introduced Protect. I joined and I’m glad I did. They’ve looked after me like gold, helped me with my paperwork and even when I was back at work, they still rang to see how I was going. Not many people do that.”

Just like with your union, when it comes to Protect, there’s strength bargaining in numbers. The benefit of negotiating together at your workplace to introduce Protect Income Protection as a condition of employment means that you get a superior cover for all workers at the workplace without having to be assessed or treated individually. You’re not evaluated on your age or health status, or asked whether or not you're a smoker - you don’t need to get a medical - everyone gets the same cover.

Speak to your union for more information about introducing income protection at your workplace.
