Minors entitlement

The minors' additional benefit is a weekly benefit that helps with the extra cost of looking after your injured child.

We pay the benefit to the parents or guardians of a child whose impairment is 11% or more.

Impairment is a permanent physical or psychological condition caused by a person’s accident injuries.

Independent Medical Examiners work out a person’s impairment rating. Your child may need to go to several exams before they get their final impairment rating.

More information is available in the Minors' additional benefit information sheet.
