Hi everyone, this week I have Chrissy Clark from Health Claims Bureau with me, talking about rehabilitation services in practice.

As an adviser, I know about the rehabilitation support that is on offer with group income protection, but do I really know what it is? When does it kick in? Who is actually stepping in and giving the support? What does the support look like?

The key takeaways:

  • 90% of people that get support within 4 weeks of ill health, are able to return to work.
  • People that do not get rehabilitation support within 26 weeks of becoming ill, are shown to have only a 5% chance of returning to work.
  • Two case studies of people that received rehabilitation support. 

I will be back soon, speaking with Peter Maynard from Select X. Our focus will be on how underwriting manuals are developed, how they work with underwriting philosophies and their role in access to insurance.

Remember, if you are listening to this as part of your work, you can claim a CPD certificate on our website, thanks to our sponsors Octo Members.
