Michael, a 50 year old insurance broker, had his world turned upside down in August 1997 when he was advised by his doctor to undergo quadruple by-pass surgery. A week later Michael had the surgery on his heart.
Michael was well prepared and through his Trauma cover, received a lump sum benefit of just under $160,000 which assisted his family while he was unable to work. He received his benefit within two days of submitting the required medical information.
The operation was a success and thanks to his Trauma Cover Michael was able to concentrate on recovering from the surgery.
