Although he had been covered by rt health fund his entire life, Andrew Littleford has now taken out his own rt health fund cover. He says: ‘I have been covered by my parents rt health fund all my life. And, recently, when I turned 21, I decided that if it had been good enough to get me to the age of 21, why not a little further? I think that rt health fund have done all they can to be kind and helpful through any troubles and any claims. The biggest surprise was receiving the $1000 Coles/Myer gift card; I really feel like I am being given something back and that I am recognised and appreciated! I am going to invest in a tablet or a convertible laptop to keep up-to-date on my apprenticeship. Oh, and maybe get something a little fun, too :-). I would recommend rt health fund to my friends and I would say family, but we’re all smart enough to already be with RT :)!’

Kevin Douglass Ryan has had a long career with the railways industry and is now enjoying his retirement – rt has been with him every step of the way.

Now 80, Kevin first joined rt health fund in 1958 and has worked in Sydney, Country Towns NSW and in the UK.

A committed member of rt health fund, the former chief civil engineer appreciates the mutual nature that has always been dedicated to putting members first.

Kevin says: ‘I have been impressed by the professional, friendly and helpful advice received from the rt member call team. Extras benefit payments are streamlined by the on-the-spot HICAPS electronic payment system. Plus, I understand that rt is in the top bracket of funds in the hospital health insurance industry. And my health providers agree – from my GP to my optometrist, dentist, audio clinic and my physiotherapist. All have remarked what a good level of benefits I’m receiving in comparison with other funds – no doubt influenced by rt being a not-for profit fund.’

‘I can certainly highly recommend that the many new staff joining the railway industry from organisations in Australia and overseas should be encouraged to join the rt health fund!’ ends Kevin.
