FAQ Topic - Mutual Fund FAQs

Name
The school had budgeted for support staff being part of the Mutual Fund for the year but had not realised that the school had not requested them to be included as part of the premium. Can the school join midway through the year?
A member of staff went on two weeks paternity leave in March and the paternity leave continued in to April. However, the single claim for March and April was not received until May. Can the claim for the entire paternity leave still be paid?
The claim was submitted late due to the finance member of staff leaving the school and the finance department not being properly covered until November, when it was noticed that the claim had not been submitted.
A member of staff was absent from work to provide emergency transport/care to a relative, can this be claimed by the Mutual Fund?
The School was not aware that they had automatically enrolled in the Mutual Fund for 2015/16 and therefore did not know that they could claim for staff absences, which is why the claim was submitted late.
An individual has been absent from work since XX. It was agreed that the individual will return to work on a 3 week phased return from XX, but on the XX the individual fell ill again with depression linked to the primary ongoing back problem. Can this claim be treated as continuous or will the waiting days be required to be applied again?
My IMASS referral report states that an additional supply teacher/teaching assistant is required to work with, and assist the returning teacher throughout the phased return. Can the school claim through the Mutual Fund, the days that the supply teacher and the returning teacher are working together?
What if my Phased Return is greater than the standard 6 week phased return claim limit?
How do you calculate how much I will receive for each claim?
I have a member of staff who is currently on half pay and has been for almost 6 months and who has now been given their notice. They are now entitled to 3 months full pay before they leave, can I claim this from the Mutual Fund.
