Income Protection, Cancer $250,000
Who is Laura?
Laura is a 27 year old dentist who recently used all of her savings to purchase her first property.
What happened to Laura?
While holidaying in Japan, Laura was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Laura’s treatment has included two surgeries, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
The good news is that Laura had an Income Protection policy, which to date, has provided her with monthly disability benefits totalling around $250,000 to date. So during the chaos of her illness, Laura hasn’t had to worry about the stress of covering her bills. Laura’s adviser also arranged the necessary paperwork with an insurance company to ensure she didn’t have to think about anything other than her recovery.
Where is Laura now?
Laura is currently at home, dealing with her illness one day at a time. While the outlook is uncertain, minimising the financial stress means she can focus on her health and spending quality time with her family.
“Everyone at the insurance company has been helpful and forthcoming with information and my case worker has been fantastic. The ease of the claim process has certainly made a difference in a time where my life has been turned upside down.”
