FAQ: Who covers my expenses while my claim is being processed?
You will need to cover your expenses while your claim is being processed. However, most reasonable expenses will be reimbursed (paid back) if the claim is accepted. It is important you keep all your receipts during this time.
If you are unable to work while the claim is being processed, you can use your sick leave (make sure the lost time is covered by a Certificate of Capacity) or your annual leave and these must be re-credited to you if your claim is accepted.
