TPD Claims & Super Lawyers Brisbane

Brisbane – Total and Permanent Disability Claims

Workers who have suffered an illness, or have had an accident or injury, may be eligible for TPD claims (Total and Permanent Disability) or claims from their Superannuation policy. If the injury or illness has caused them to be unable, for six consecutive months, to do the work they once did, they could be entitled to a TPD payment. At PK Simpson Brisbane we recommend that anyone in this position should check with our specialist Super Lawyers and TPD Lawyers to ascertain whether or not they may be entitled to lodge Super claims or TPD claims. They may be entitled to receive a lump sum TPD payment if they can no longer work in the same capacity as they did before the illness or injury.

Such benefits from Super claims, or TPD claims from a private insurer, can cover debts accrued, medical fees, and provide an income to help as much as possible to restore the person’s quality of life. If a parent or partner (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 TPD 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 Brisbane can help make sure you are eligible for and receive the maximum lump sum.

At PK Simpson Brisbane our TPD claims Lawyers and Super Lawyers focus on keeping our clients up-to-date and supported throughout TPD claims process.

Our expert TPD Lawyers will handle your claims, maximising each one, making sure no stone is left unturned.

You can make TPD claims providing you’ve been employed and have Superannuation cover or private insurance with TPD cover. However, there’s a lot of variation between the different Super funds and other insurers with regard to TPD, and between each policy as well, so it can be complicated when it comes to who can and who cannot submit Super claims and TPD claims.

  2. Have stopped working as a result of illness or injury
  3. Be aged under 65 years on the date that they stopped work due to the above

How do I make TPD claims and Super Claims?

Specific steps must be taken to lodge successful TPD claims and Super claims and these depend on which Insurance agency or Super fund is handling your policy. It also depends on whether or not your policy covers you for your particular TPD. To increase your chances of successful Super claims for TPD or other TPD claims, you would be well advised to seek legal help because the claims process can be lengthy, and at PK Simpson Brisbane our specialist TPD Lawyers and Super Lawyers can make sure you receive the benefits to which you are entitled. The following are some of the common requirements for making TPD claims, be these Super claims or from another insurer:

  1. Your employment history – Before you can make TPD claims, some policies require you to have had a minimum level of employment.
  2. Waiting periods – To give all injuries, illnesses and symptoms time to stabilise and the full spectrum of damage to be ascertained, some policies ask you to wait for a certain period before lodging Super claims or TPD claims – but it’s important to seek legal help as soon as possible after your injury or illness so you’re ready to lodge your TPD claims.
  3. The level of your disability – When lodging Super claims or other TPD claims, you will likely be asked to show that you have a minimal level of disability which will be considered when ascertaining when you can or cannot return to your previous job, or whether you are able to work at all.
  4. Permanent disability payouts – The amount of money you get from TPD claims and Super claims is usually based on the number of weekly work hours or the total length of your employment.
