TPD Claims & Super Lawyers Canberra

Canberra – Total and Permanent Disability Claims

Anyone who has suffered an accident or injury may be eligible for TPD claims (Total and Permanent Disability) if this has caused them to be unable, for six consecutive months, to do the work they once did. It’s advisable for anyone in this position to check with our specialist Super Lawyers and TPD Lawyers in Canberra to ascertain whether or not they may be entitled to lodge TPD claims. They may be entitled to receive a lump sum payment if they can no longer work in the same capacity as they did before the illness or injury.

These benefits from Super claims or TPD claims from a private insurer can pay for debts accrued, medical fees, and supply an income to help as much as possible to restore the person’s quality of life. If a partner or parent (or someone a person depends upon) dies, the person may be able to claim death benefits from the deceased person’s private insurer or make Super claims from their fund to help with any financial burdens. Individual policies vary in their levels of cover, waiting periods, and the length of time in which benefits are payable. So, if you can’t work for the reasons mentioned above, PK Simpson’s TPD claims and Super Lawyers in Canberra can help make sure you are eligible for and receive the maximum lump sum.

What sort of compensation can I expect?

    I Live in Canberra, Can I Make TPD or Super Claims?

    Yes, if you live in Canberra or any state in Australia, can make TPD claims, and Super claims be that from a private insurer or Super fund. You can make TPD claims providing you’ve been employed and have Superannuation cover or private insurance. However, there’s a lot of variation between the different Super funds and other insurers and between each policy so it can be complicated when it comes to who can and who cannot submit Super claims and TPD claims. But to be classified as totally and permanently disabled, or TPD, a fund member or policyholder, no matter where they live in Australia, must:

    1. Be deemed incapable, because of injury or illness, to work in any job for which they are reasonably qualified by training, education, or experience
    2. Have stopped working as a result of illness or injury
    3. Be aged under 65 years on the date they stopped work due to the above
    4. Have TPD cover included in their Super or private insurance policy on the date they stopped work.

    You may be able to make TPD claims or Super claims from:

    • Employment Disability Insurance
    • Sickness or Accident Insurance
    • A private Superannuation fund
    • Trauma insurance
    • Income protection Insurance
    • Mortgage protection Insurance
    • Loan protection insurance
    • Life insurance

    The sum you could be entitled to receive can range from $10,000 to over a million in some cases, but if you’re unsure about anything about TPD claims, or Super claims, contact your Super fund or call PK Simpson and talk to a specialist from our team of TPD Lawyers in Canberra for advice.
