    ACC Surcharge

    Does everyone pay the same ACC surcharge when consulting with their GP's when seeing them because of an injury? I pay $51 every time I get my cert renewed. In my opinion the compulsory ACC Levy that we all pay in some way or another should cover GP visits!

    Code of Claimants Rights

    Over the years there would be thousands of people who have had their claimants rights abused by the ACC. If you complaint to "The Office of the Complaints Investigator" you then get more of the same from them as well! Hopefully more people will speak up (here on the forum) about the way ACC have treated them then others in the future can be better prepared when confronted by ACC's money saving bullshit! They have over $40 BILLION DOLLARS of our money in their bank account. Money that should be used to help those who are injured!

    Code of Claimants Rights

    Many have experienced the following ACC will send you a letter a day before Christmas informing you that your injury claim is "Declined"! ACC will send you a letter a week before Christmas informing you that your ERC is being Suspended as from the day before Christmas!

    Open Letter to Scott Pickering

    Could Lupine or someone who is more knowledgeable than myself on ACC Acts and Sections etc explain what Section 221 (2) and Schedule 4 C 22 are? That is a very well written letter Lupine. I forgot to include where I found Lupines Open Letter in the above post - www.cassandracomplex.org.nz Thank you. Now, what are or is "Section 221 (2) and Schedule 4 C 22" Anyone?

  7. I discovered this media release on acc's website and reproduced it here hoping others will be saying the same as I am after reading the release https://www.acc.co.nz/about-us/news-media/latest-news/passing-of-the-accident-compensation-amendment-bill/ My question remains unanswered If a 65 year old decides to carry on in employment or decides to get back into employment at that grand age are they eligible to receive ACC ERC if injured while working (after the age of retirement - 65 is the age) https://www.acc.co.nz/about-us/news-media/latest-news/passing-of-the-accident-compensation-amendment-bill/ Simplifying transitions from weekly compensation for those nearing New Zealand Superannuation qualifying age ACC clients injured near to, or after retirement age will no longer have to choose between weekly compensation and New Zealand Superannuation or the Veterans’ Pension after receiving a year of both. They can now receive up to 24 months of weekly compensation and New Zealand Superannuation at the same time. I do not agree with this below Disestablishing the historic Accident Compensation Appeal Authority, with any new appeals being heard by the District Court

Medicinal cannabis firm Cannasouth plans NZX listing with $10 million IPO https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/112824412/medicinal-cannabis-firm-cannasouth-plans-nzx-listing-with-10-million-ipo Well anyway, I'll certainly be saving all my pocket money for the next few weeks and maybe have enough saved to get a share or two if they;re reasonably priced. Anyone else willing to consider investing in shares when available?

    Christchurch Terror attack & ACC

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/christchurch-shooting/112760245/muslim-group-funding-homes-trips-to-mecca-for-christchurch-mosque-shooting-victims Payments from Work and Income (WINZ), ACC, and IRD "leave her with less than half what the family earned before." There is also the $10 million plus Victim's Support got from the Give a little appeal. So who is getting help from Victim's Support? Sounds like no-one is!
  13. When I was a member of the accforum dot org I came upon a number of posts regarding a number of previous database errors that that forum had experienced over the years. It made sense what I had read. Hundreds of members posts have been deleted over the last year or so since that "Auckland Blogger" was sentenced to 10 months home detention for Criminal Harassment. Was there a connection between the alleged owner of that now defunct forum, Alan Thomas, and the "Auckland Blogger"? Well, my opinion is that all the alleged evidence has just been destroyed - database error

    German chancellor Angela Merkel says "When-ever Alan Thomas over at the accforum dot org doesn't like what another member has written in an attempt to help him appeal his acc fraud conviction he moves the thread from public view and into members only section!!" German chancellor Angela Merkel goes on and says "Why would he do that?"
