My husband lost his right index finger a few months back in an accident at work. He has only been back at work two weeks after being off for 5 months. We don't know how much his payout will be from work cover or how long it will take but we are getting mixed ideas as to what to do with the money. Some people are telling us to just spend it on what we want, others are telling us to put it on our home loan, some say buy a bigger car. My thought is to pay off what bills we have we would possibly be looking at saving 1500 per month if we do this. We have been given many figures off various people as to what the pay out might be but no idea of workcover. What are your thoughts?
