AMP has announced a disaster relief package for clients impacted by the Australian bushfires.
Support measures for impacted clients include:
- Waiving of certain bank fees for customers requiring urgent access to their funds
- Temporarily postponing home loan repayments or extending the term of a loan
- If the ATO has assessed that a customer is eligible on compassionate grounds, releasing superannuation funds early to help with medical and other expenses
- A one-off three-month waiver from paying AMP life, total and permanent disability, trauma, income protection and business expenses insurance premiums.
Impacted clients can call 13 30 30 to discuss the specific options that may be available to them. Further information on AMP’s disaster relief package can be viewed at www.amp.com.au/disaster-relief.
In addition to the disaster relief package, the AMP Foundation is providing financial assistance to all impacted rural fire brigades where our employees and advisers volunteer. AMP employees and the AMP Foundation have so far donated over $250,000 to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund, helping support communities and individuals that have been affected by the bushfires.
