Help for Aussie farmers battling the drought
If you’re a farmer dealing with the drought, you know the strain it can put on your finances. But it’s important to still keep the insurance protection you and your family rely on.
So we’re helping you and other Aussie farmers who are doing it tough. If you’re a primary producer with a Rural Farm policy, we can help ease the pressure by deferring your premium payments for up to a year with a Drought Assistance Package.
How it works
Deferring the payment means, if you’re eligible, we’ll cover your next renewal premium for up to 12 months. This lets you keep your insurance (until it expires) and you don’t have to pay your premium up front.
Some or all of your premium can be deferred, depending on what you need. There’s no interest or fees and you can still make a claim like you normally would.
We’ve partnered with Elantis Premium Funding to create your repayment plan. When you apply, Elantis will work with you to create a plan based on your specific financial situation.
You’re eligible for the Drought Assistance Package if:
- You have a current Rural Farm policy with a renewal date between 28 November 2018 and 27 November 2019
- You’re a primary producer living in a drought affected area (declared by your State Government)
- You’re currently receiving the Federal Government’s Farm Household Allowance and getting drought-related financial help from your bank or financial institution
If all of these describe you, then you’re eligible to apply for the package.
How to apply
If you’re eligible, call us on 1300 667 227 (8:30am–5pm AEDT, Mon–Fri).
Make sure you apply before your policy’s expiry date. Keep your renewal notice handy when you call.
