  • any injury or illness, or involuntary redundancy that is not sustained within 28 days of the policy commencement.

How Finance Protection Insurance cover works

Redundancy and Vehicle Hand-back claim example

  • You’ve been made redundant by your current employer.
  • Your finance contract repayments are $1,500 per month and you’re unable to secure further employment for 63 days from the date your redundancy commenced.
  • For each day you are unemployed (excluding the first 14 days), we’ll pay a daily benefit equal to 1/30th of the finance contract monthly repayment amount.
  • If, after 76 days from the date your redundancy commenced you elect to hand back your vehicle, we will pay the financier the finance contract payout amount less the net sale price of the vehicle less any arrears.

We’ll pay your financier (Redundancy claim)

A daily benefit for the period you’re unemployed (excluding the first 14 days) equal to:

$1,500 ÷ 30 x (63 - 14 days) = $2,450 (total benefit)

 

We’ll pay your financier (Vehicle Hand-back claim)

At the time of handing back your vehicle the finance contract payout amount is $47,500. The net sale price obtained for your vehicle is $33,000 and your repayments are one month in arrears ($1,500). The maximum cover amount you selected is $12,500 as shown on your policy schedule. We have previously paid you a benefit of $2,450 for your 63 day redundancy claim.

$47,500 – $33,000 – $1,500 = $13,000

The maximum cover amount you selected is $12,500 and you have previously claimed $2,450, leaving $10,050 (total entitlement for this claim).

We will pay $10,050 which is the remaining benefit to your financier.

The above is an example of how we pay a claim under a Finance Protection Insurance policy and are not terms or conditions of the policy wording.
