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.

At PK Simpson Canberra 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.

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

You can make TPD claims providing you’ve been employed and have Superannuation cover or private insurance.

  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

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