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:
- Income protection
- Mortgage protection
- Loan protection
- Car insurance
- Home insurance and contents insurance
- Life insurance or funeral insurance
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.

If you’re insured with ANZ including through your credit card, it’s best to check with our insurance team to see if you’re eligible to make a claim before applying for assistance. This will of course depend on the type of insurance you have and your reason for experiencing financial difficulty.
