An insurance policy may cover the situation that is contributing to your financial difficulty.
Before you apply for assistance, you may want to review the polices of any relevant insurance you may hold, such as:
- Car insurance
- Mortgage protection
- Loan protection
- Home insurance and contents insurance
- Life insurance or funeral insurance
- Income protection
If you or a family member have relevant insurance, be sure to look into whether your situation is covered under the policy.
It may also be worth looking into your Superannuation to see if you have insurance cover as part of your product or membership.
