Following feedback from our members the PBF member benefit payment has been increased to $250,000. Previously $100,000, a PBF member will now be entitled to claim $250,000 in the event of sustaining a permanent spinal cord injury.
The increase recognises the overall rise in the cost of living, plus increases in medical, rehabilitation and accommodation modification expenses. The new benefit amount will be available to existing PBF Corporate Members from 1 May, 2015 and existing Private Members as of July 1, 2015.
The increase in the benefit payment means there has been small increases to membership fees. We have tried to keep these increases to a minimum and hope that you will agree that they represent great value.
And remember a PBF membership helps us support those Australians living with spinal cord injury.
