ACC simply stops your ACC payments as soon as you turn 65!
You have no rights!
There is no no discussion?
A person who has been ruled unfit for work under ACC cannot get extra work under ACC and hihgly likely cannot get work extra work under the New Zealand Super Scheme.
There is no consideration of the possibility of your ability to get extra work? And yet a non injured person could have a number of jobs when they are aged 65 and still collect the National Super Scheme.
No thought to the fact the average retire now works to 70 so maybe ACC should be paid to 70 not to 65! Remember these people have been badly injured, injured to the extent that they cant work!
A policeman or a soldier injured with PTSD gets paid for the rest of their life but a civilian injured with PTSD in the eartquake doesn't? Is this fair?
