Are you eligible for a claim?
If you are unable to return to work following an injury or illness, you may be entitled to make a TPD claim, which provides you with a substantial benefit under your superannuation policy. What you are entitled to depends on the criteria within your specific policy. Our specialist TPD lawyers can help you navigate these details and decide whether you have a legitimate claim with your insurance company.
TPD criteria may include but not be limited to, requiring that the injured or unwell party:
- be unable to work in any employment for which they are reasonably qualified by education, training or experience as a result of their injury or illness
- have stopped working due to injury or illness
- be under 65 years of age when they stopped working
- have an active insurance policy when they stopped working.
