IMPORTANT PROTECT BENEFIT NOTICE
AMBULANCE MEMBERSHIP REIMBURSEMENT
As members are aware, last year the UFU negotiated and achieved an AV membership subscription reimbursement for UFU members through the PROTECT income protection scheme. This benefit has been very successful and has a high take-up amongst members.
In ensuring members have the latest information in relation to this benefit, we bring the following 2 updates to your attention:
AMBULANCE VICTORIA MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL PAYMENTS
If you have PROTECT income protection, you are entitled to a reimbursement of your AV membership by PROTECT as one of the many benefits of your income protection scheme.
Recently, members have received AV invoices for renewal of their subscriptions. Please note that PROTECT DOES NOT automatically pay your AV membership.
You must pay your own AV subscriptions/renewals and then send the receipt to ATC Insurance for reimbursement at email@example.com.
It is important to be aware of the above to ensure that you (and your family) remain covered.
AMBULANCE MEMBERSHIP FOR MEMBERS LIVING IN NSW
Some UFU members, particularly those stationed at stations in Northern Victoria, live in NSW.
PROTECT has agreed to reimburse members living in NSW with HCF ambulance cover. See the following link for more information on this ambulance cover: https://www.hcf.com.au/insurance/health/get-a-quote/ambulance-only
For questions on any of the above, please call the UFU Office on 9419 8811 or your PROTECT Field Officer (information found in PROTECT boxes at station/workplaces).
