We are here to help
We recognise that we are all likely to experience vulnerability at some point in our lives. This vulnerability may result from life events, such as an illness, natural disaster or loss of income. Other factors may be longer term – such as a disability or financial distress. We are committed to supporting customers through these tough times with respect, flexibility, dignity and care. This means we will make reasonable adjustments and put in place appropriate support to take into account of these support needs and provide access to flexible options. This may include referring to additional support, such as people or services with specialist training and experience.
We have internal policies and training appropriate to our employees’ roles to help them understand if you may be vulnerable, and decide how best, and to what extent, we can support you.
If you would like to discuss your insurance needs in a language other than English, please call us on 1300 726 087, select option 1 for policy enquiries, and we will arrange this for you where possible.

If you’re experiencing family or domestic violence, we are here to support you with compassion, respect, flexibility and care.

Financial hardship is when you may have difficulty in meeting your financial obligations. Our policies and training of employees assists them to identify if you are experiencing financial hardship and decide how we may be able to provide support to you.
This support could include fast-tracking of claims if you have an urgent financial need, payment options for your claims excess, or putting action to recover an amount from you on hold if we identify you are experiencing financial hardship. Please call us on 1300 726 087 or call the National Debt Hotline on 1800 007 007.
A Target Market Determination (TMD) describes the class of customers an insurance cover has been designed for, including the key attributes of the insurance cover and the customers who are eligible for it.
A TMD does not replace the terms and conditions, nor the disclosures made, in a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). You should continue to refer to the PDS before deciding to purchase an insurance cover.
Worldcare is committed to delivering high standards of service to our customers. However, we do recognise that sometimes we may not meet your expectations.
