Our Testimonials

I found myself out of work for 6 weeks due to a football injury a little while back. I was tackled, fell down hard on my elbow and heard a loud snap. After my X-ray in hospital, it was confirmed that I had both dislocated and broke my elbow. I needed to have surgery, and with the nature of my injury I needed a longer recovery time to return to work as a chef. I lodged my claim straight away with Football Federation Australia, and was shocked to find out that I was only covered for $250 a week. It was a very stressful 6 weeks, and I would have definitely sought additional cover if I knew this previously. It’s worth it.
