WorkWelfareWills is a plain English web guide to legal issues around health and life changes. It was produced for use in Victoria only as some of the laws will be different in other states of Australia.
Chronic illnesses bring about lifestyle changes. This resource was designed by the Chronic Illness Alliance to help people with a chronic illness, their families and advisors, to make informed decisions about the future.
Having a chronic illness means you need to:
- Plan for income after leaving your job by learning about entitlements from your superannuation fund and from Centrelink.
- Manage your future financial, medical and lifestyle decisions.
- Know more about your health privacy and who you do and do not have to tell about your illness including travel insurance companies.
