Sickness and Accident
Full members may under some circumstances be entitled to Sickness benefits from the Fire Service Fund. To qualify, the full Member must have exhausted any accumulated sick leave. On application, a fortnightly payment of $300.00 may be approved. Due to the Fund’s status with Centrelink as a “Friendly Society” the payment of this benefit by the Fund is exempt from the Income Test Assessment applied by Centrelink. Additional financial assistance may be available under this benefit.
Please contact the Fire Service Fund for more information.
