ACC CoverPlus Extra

ACC CoverPlus Extra puts you in control. It is designed to give you an agreed amount of lost earnings cover. This way you know exactly how much you will receive each week if you are injured and cannot work - whether the injury is work related or not.

If you are self-employed or a non-PAYE shareholder-employee, you will automatically get all the normal benefits of ACC CoverPlus or ACC WorkPlace Cover. But you may want to raise or lower your level of cover.

ACC CoverPlus Extra lets you negotiate an agreed level of lost earnings cover. Then, if you are injured, you will receive 100% of that agreed amount starting one week after the injury.

Other benefits of ACC CoverPlus Extra include:

-          access to a full range of medical and rehabilitation benefits

-          negotiate the amount of lost earnings cover

-          receive 100% of weekly agreed amount if you cannot work due to injury

-          no need to prove loss of earnings

ACC CoverPlus Extra is a great option if:

-          you income fluctuates

-          personal income is not a true indication of actual earnings

-          your business will still generate income while you are injured

There are options available through ACC CoverPlus Extra to effectively manage your ACC costs and to maximize claims and payouts. Options may include a combination of ACC CoverPlus Extra and income protection insurance cover to maximize your benefits. Please note that individual and business circumstances may differ.
