Financial supports

Breast cancer treatment can have an impact on the way you run your business. You may need to re-organise your business activities and workload or seek assistance for a short period.

During treatment the financial pressure was high. I cut my wage to half for two months to ensure my household and business would survive. I returned to work slowly as I felt able. I have now returned full-time.

Seek financial advice

The first step is to make sure you have as much money coming in as possible.

To ensure you are making the best decision for your circumstance, seek financial advice from an appropriate expert.

You may consider closing or selling your business. However, before you do, it is important to be aware of the financial implications on any financial support you are receiving or entitled to from both Centrelink and your superannuation insurance.
