    Superannuation & TPD Claims

    If you’re an employee, superannuation cover is compulsory in Australia. Often, superannuation companies will combine superannuation and TPD (total permanent disability) in the one policy. You may be paying for TPD cover without realising it. Many people facing personal injury claims, particularly those where they are affected for life, are surprised to find they are covered through their superannuation company, offering benefits when needed.

    While a death benefit from superannuation is easy to prove, the same cannot be said for a TPD claim; it all comes down to the wording and the terms and conditions on your superannuation and TPD policy. Your claim involves a scope of your disability, the period during which you are unable to earn an income, or the full amount of income, from an occupation for which you are educated, trained and experienced. These claims can be difficult to navigate, which means you need the assistance of a legal team with the experience in dealing with superannuation and TPD claims following injury.

    What Claims Am I Entitled To?

    The claims you are entitled to depend on your coverage and your policy, however you may find coverage including:

    • Total and permanent disability (TPD)
    • Income protection
    • Trauma insurance
    • Terminal illness
    • Insurance litigation

    Am I Eligible to Claim a Benefit Through Superannuation?

    You may be entitled to a superannuation claim if:

    • You were working and your employer was paying compulsory superannuation, and you suffer an injury or illness that has prevented you from working for 3 consecutive months
    • You have entered into a private contract of insurance for income protection or disability insurance.

    Even if you are self-employed, you may still be eligible to claim a benefit through your superannuation should you be injured and no longer able to work.
