The Pilot

From 17 June 2019, the Pilot will pay for reasonable medical and like expenses incurred by emergency workers, including employees and volunteers, while their compensation claim is being determined. The Pilot will also pay for a worker's reasonable medical and like expenses for an extended period (up to a total 13 continuous weeks) if their claim is rejected.

The Provisional Payments Pilot is being administered by the Department of Justice and Community Safety Victoria.

Your employer or volunteer agency can be contacted for more information.
