Applying for early benefits

You might be able to make a claim for early benefits using the accident notification form (ANF). The ANF allows you to apply for early benefits up to $5000 for your treatment and loss of earning without having to lodge a full claim. These benefits are available regardless of who’s at fault.

Send the completed ANF to the insurer within 28 days of the accident.

The insurer will let you know within 10 working days of receiving your form whether they will pay for your early treatment expenses and lost earnings.

A formal claim can take a lot longer to finalise. You can make a formal claim later if you like. Call our Claims Advisory Service on 1300 656 919 or email us at motor@sira.nsw.gov.au and we can help you fill out the form and find out which insurer will be managing your claim.
