Superannuation Contributions - Do you have an entitlement whilst receiving WorkCover payments?

Superannuation Contributions - Do you have an entitlement whilst receiving WorkCover payments?

It is now more than twelve months since the law governing WorkCover claims was amended to give injured workers an entitlement to Superannuation contributions, whilst they are in recept of weekly payments.

If you have sustained a workplace injury on or after 5 April 2010 and:

  • You have received 52 weeks of weekly payments;
  • Your weekly payments are continuing;
  • You have not reached the age of 65; and
  • Your employer has not paid contributions on your behalf

You will be eligible to receive Superannuation contributions paid into your nominated Superannuation Fund.

It is the responsibility of the Insurer handing your claim to notify you of your eligibility for Superannuation contribution payments. If you are eligible, you must nominate a Superannuation Fund. The contributions will be paid at the guarantee rate (currently 9%) of your weekly payments amount.

No Win, No Fee

If we proceed with a claim you only have to pay legal costs if we are successful in getting you compensation.
