TPD and Income Protection
Navigating the complexities of Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) and Income Protection claims can be daunting. If an injury or illness has left you unable to work, possibly for the long term, you might have a valid claim against your superannuation fund. Each fund operates under its distinct policies and benefit criteria, outlining the payable benefits.
For comprehensive guidance, support, and advocacy with your TPD and Income Protection claims, choose QLegal as your partner. We're here to protect your rights and ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
What is TPD (Total and Permanent Disability) insurance?
TPD insurance provides financial support if you're unable to work due to a severe injury or illness that leaves you permanently disabled. It offers a lump sum payment to help cover medical expenses, ongoing care, and other costs.
How is TPD different from Income Protection insurance?
TPD insurance provides a lump sum payout for permanent disability, while Income Protection insurance offers regular payments (usually a percentage of your income) to replace lost income during temporary disability, helping you cover everyday expenses.
What qualifies as "Total and Permanent Disability"?
The definition varies among policies and insurers. Generally, it means you're unable to perform your regular occupation or any other occupation for which you are suited due to the injury or illness. The criteria can be strict, so it's crucial to understand your policy terms.
Can I claim TPD through my superannuation fund?
Yes, many super funds offer TPD insurance as part of their membership benefits. If you're permanently disabled and meet the specific conditions set out in your policy, you can make a claim for TPD benefits.
What does the TPD claim process involve?
The process typically involves submitting medical documentation, supporting evidence, and completing claim forms provided by your super fund. The insurer will assess your claim based on the policy terms and medical evidence.
Can I claim both TPD and Income Protection benefits simultaneously?
Yes, it's possible if your insurance coverage includes both. TPD provides a lump sum payout, while Income Protection offers regular payments to replace your lost income during a temporary disability.
