“ I was introduced to Murray through a mutual friend, whom when I met with Murray took me through all insurance options available to me as a single mother, which gave me a great basis for being able to make sound decisions for myself and my daughter. In 2012 I rang Murray to tell him about my serious health issue that had arisen. At the time it was overwhelming for me due to the upcoming surgery. It was a stressful time knowing my 6 year old daughter at the time and I would need to move out of familiar surroundings and in with my mother to aid in my recovery. I rung Murray post operation and he came out to see me just after Christmas day. He helped me to complete all the claim forms and clearly outlined the process so I had a full clear understanding. In the new year, Murray rung me to advise of my successful claim and I was to receive a lump sum payment from the Trauma Insurance. My daughter and I will always be grateful for the advice and genuineness from Murray and thankful for the lump sum payment we received. I would highly recommend Murray.

Trauma Cover (critical illness)
A SERIOUS ILLNESS NEED NOT CRIPPLE YOU FINANCIALLY
It can take time to recover from a serious illness like cancer, heart attack, stroke or a serious injury from an accident. Time that you're unable to work. Time that you're unable to do the everyday things that care for your family.
Trauma insurance pays out a lump sum amount if you are diagnosed with one of a list of specified serious conditions including, but not limited to, cancer, heart attack and stroke.
It provides up front funds to help meet expenses such as:
• medical expenses, (including travel for alternative treatments, private treatment to avoid hospital waiting lists, expensive medications);
• repayment or reduction of debts (mortgage, hire purchase, etc) so that you don’t have that extra worry;
• childcare costs;
• rehabilitation costs and occupational retraining;
• home nursing costs or homehelp;
• modifications to your home (e.g. wheelchair access, hoists, etc).
• replace lost income
• prostheses/mobility appliances, etc.
You choose how you use the funds to make a stressful situation a little bit easier.
