TAL offers farmers respite from their life insurance premiums
Drought-stricken farmers to have their premiums waived for six months.
In an effort to ease pressure on the budgets of its drought-stricken life insurance customers, TAL announced it is waiving premiums for the next six months.
"This support will ensure that farmers in drought-affected areas and their families can maintain the life insurance cover they need and provide some financial relief during this difficult time," group CEO and managing director Brett Clark said of the assistance package in a statement.
Farmers in drought-affected areas of New South Wales and Queensland are encouraged to apply for the waiver, which will see premium payments that are due from 1 September 2018 waived and continue for the next six months. Current TAL customers can apply for the premium waiver until 30 November 2018.
"We understand that in these challenging circumstances, every dollar counts, and we are proud to support farmers in NSW and Queensland who are impacted by the drought," Clark said.
In order to claim the waiver you need to be:
- A current TAL customer.
- Live in a drought-affected area of New South Wales or Queensland.
- Qualify for the Federal Government's Farm Household Allowance.
- Provide a copy of your Federal Government Farm Household Allowance approval.
To apply for the waiver you'll need to get in touch with TAL before 30 November 2018, and lodge your application over the phone by calling 1300 209 088 or sending an email to email@example.com.
