Income Protection for the Construction Industry

About Uplus

The construction industry is a rewarding but often dangerous place to work. You get the satisfaction of witnessing new buildings resurrect before your eyes. And to see the happiness on people’s faces when you build their dream homes.

But, due to the hands-on nature of building, you are at risk of many different types of injuries. This can include anything from an injured back, hip, neck or arm, falling objects or a range of health conditions that can develop from working on site.

What is UPlus?

Established in 1994, UPlus is a specifically tailored income protection product purchased by building and construction industry employers for their employees. This cover provides replacement income for employees who can't work at full capacity or at all due to sickness or injury.

It also provides New South Wales employees with Workers Compensation Top-Up insurance which complements lump sum awards made under the Workers Compensation Act (NSW) in 1987.

Key Benefits:

  • Income benefit for a total disability resulting from an Accident or Sickness
  • 30 day waiting period
  • 2 year benefit period
  • Accidental death cover
  • Cover is in place 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, both within and outside the workplace (worldwide)
  • Improves the benefits members recieve through their Workers Compensation Insurance
