The Paraplegic Benefit Fund

For people already living with a disability, PBF Australia may at first glance seem like “closing the gate after the horses have bolted”. However, there is much more to it than meets the eye, and it’s only after incurring a catastrophic injury, like a spinal cord injury, that people may truly appreciate the value of having a membership like PBF’s.

PBF Australia is a membership based organisation, offering crucial financial protection in the unfortunate event of a traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). Members of PBF Australia who sustain a permanent spinal cord injury are eligible to apply for a member benefit of $250,000.00 (please refer to PDS on their website for full details).

Seeking to reduce the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury in Australia, PBF offers injury prevention and peer support programs. They also offer employment for many individuals impacted by spinal cord injury, provide road safety education programs in the community and have a gifting program to assist those living with an SCI who are in financial hardship. The support of their members enables PBF Australia to achieve this.
