Total Permanent Disability Claims
If you have taken out total permanent disability (TPD) cover as part of your superannuation policy, you may be entitled to claim a lump sum of money.
Find out where you stand. Speak to our TPD lawyers today.
You can claim benefits from your superannuation fund if you are unable to work due to injury or illness, provided you had an active policy at the date you last worked or when your accident occurred.
These benefits may include:
- Income protection which provides you with a stream of income for a period of time whilst you’re unable to work.
- Total Permanent Disability benefit, where you are unable to do work for which you are skilled and have experience to perform.
- Death benefit, payable to the policy holder’s beneficiaries in the event of their death.
- Trauma benefit i.e. cancer, heart attacks and strokes. Often you would have opted to take out this policy which entitles you to a lump sum where you suffer from the specific trauma.
If you had multiple superannuation policies you may be able to make multiple TPD claims.
Every superannuation fund is different in their definitions, criteria and requirements for a claim. Your entitlements depend on both the terms of the trust deed, and the specific insurance policy.
Our TPD lawyers at Maxiom Injury Lawyers will gather and carefully assess these documents and provide personalised advice about your entitlement to claim.
“Sach Fernando immediately put in place the necessary framework required to achieve the ultimate financial outcome and to ensure I had the right support during such a difficult time – both were achieved and exceeded my expectations, including the accessing of all superannuation and insurance benefits available to me.”
