AIAA and CMLA will be extending the current premium waiver offers to cover additional locations in New South Wales, as well as the newly affected states Victoria and South Australia.
myOwn will provide a waiver of premium payments of 3 months to eligible members residing in bushfire affected areas, as well as access to policy suspension for up to 2 years. Members who are volunteer firefighters working in the affected areas will be eligible for a premium waiver of one month.
How your clients can apply for the waiver
If you have clients you think may have been impacted by the fires, please contact us on 1800 033 490 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can help them by 30 April 2020.
We understand that providing tailored claims management programs to those of your clients in bushfire-affected regions is critical at this stage. We’ve identified current claimants within these regions, and our claims teams will be giving them priority and working with them to tailor temporary claims solutions during the short to medium term.
AIAA, AIA Group and CMLA will be donating over $100,000 to bushfire relief, half of which will be going to the Australian Red Cross for urgent relief measures. We will then work with disaster recovery experts to determine how the remaining funds can be best put towards the long-term rebuilding of impacted communities.
On the 27 January 2020, we will be establishing additional avenues for donations by adding the Australian Red Cross as an AIA Vitality Active Benefits member. AIA Vitality members will be able to assign their weekly Active Benefits reward to the Australian Red Cross.
We are also encouraging members to donate to the organisation via the GoFundMe fundraising site (links will be promoted on the AIAA, AIA Vitality and CMLA websites, and in the AIA Vitality member portal and app).
