When a member of the HSU dies, the union is here to help the family in their time of need. The HSU will provide a $10,000 payment to the next of kin on production of a death certificate. While the payment might be used to pay for the member’s funeral, it could also be used for rent assistance, outstanding bills, credit cards etc.
New members will be covered for accidental death and illnesses. This includes pre-existing illnesses.
The benefit ceases when a member reaches 70 years of age.
Contact HSU on 1300 478 679 for further information.
