Total and Permanent Disability Claims
If you are unable to work because of an illness or injury, you may be eligible to make a Total Permanent Disability (TPD) claim for a lump sum payment from your superannuation fund. Many employer superannuation policies have disability insurance included to cover payments to workers who are no longer able to undertake their usual kind of work, and many subcontractors, couriers or owner-drivers would also find that their insurance covers such claims.
Most importantly, you do not need to have been injured at work in order to make a TPD claim.
If you are eligible to make a TPD claim you may be covered for benefits such as:
- Disability benefits
- Income protection or salary continuance benefits
- Death and/or terminal illness benefits.
At CDQ, our experienced lawyers can provide the advice you need with regard to TPD claims. They can guide you through the complex process of making a claim and help you regain control over your life, when you need it.
