Getting financial support
Being diagnosed with and treated for cancer can significantly impact your finances and cause financial strain.
If this happens, it’s important to know there are ways to ease this financial stress.
- You may be able to access a lump sum payment from your superannuation fund on compassionate grounds. This can help cover the costs of treatment, transport or rehabilitation.
- You may be eligible for income protection.
- You may be able to get temporary relief from personal debt or mortgage repayments from your bank/financial institution.
Speak with your superannuation fund, bank or financial advisor to learn more about your options.
