What Is TPD Insurance?

TPD insurance is a type of coverage provided by many superannuation funds and is sometimes also referred to as a disability insurance benefit. It may help to ease the financial strain you may be experiencing as a result of your unforeseen circumstances. Most people forget or are unaware that this insurance cover is even in place, and do not understand the process for making TPD claims Brisbane law requires. Your Splatt lawyers will work with you to review your rights and put forward the best possible claim to get you the compensation and financial support you deserve.

Do I Have TPD Insurance?

Many injured workers and victims of motor vehicle accidents do not to know they have TPD workers compensation disability cover as it is automatically provided when they join a superannuation fund. If you want to find out if you have TPD insurance, check the member information statement that your superannuation fund sends you from time to time, which should state how much cover you have for TPD. If you do not have a member information statement, you can obtain your disability cover by requesting it directly from your superannuation fund.

Claiming Your TPD Can Be Complex

TPD law is a complex area that is always being changed and updated by court decisions. The restriction on obtaining a TPD benefit has been increased, with more hurdles than ever to jump through to prove you are entitled to your claim. It is important to find out what you are entitled to at an early stage to ensure you know about your benefits from your insurance or superannuation fund. Speaking to a Splatt lawyer can help you understand the process of making TPD claims in Brisbane and what to do if your claim is denied or delayed.

A Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) benefit is often a lump-sum payment based on the date you stopped working due to illness or injury. Typically, if you have TPD coverage through a super fund, it will also cover your superannuation account balance.

Depending on your unique circumstances, you might be required to pay taxes on your TPD benefit. Plus, TPD lump-sum payments may potentially affect Centrelink benefits. Note that you can minimise taxes by leaving all or a portion of your payout in your Super fund.

A permanent disability is a physical or mental condition that lasts a person’s entire lifetime. A state from which they may never recover or which may persist for an unspecified time.

Usually, a TPD Insurance Claim resolves between six to twelve months. Insurance firms often finish their initial evaluation in six months. Investigation and case preparation by our TPD insurance lawyers can take up to six months. The length of your claim depends on the degree of complexity and the nature of your medical condition. You might get a  favourable solution more quickly thanks to Splatt Lawyers’ fast-track legal procedure.

Australia has several TPD claim time limits. Essentially, they range between a few months and six years. However, the typical time frame for disability claims would be six years. There might not be a time restriction for some medical diseases that take years to develop. Get free legal advice from our team today to determine which deadlines might apply to your case.

The difficulty of accessing the benefit provided by your TPD insurance cover depends on several factors. Variables include your illness or injury, how it affects your capacity to work, and your TPD insurance policy requirements. Your claim can be more straightforward if you are covered for being unable to work in any occupation rather than your typical occupation. Remember, you only have one chance to have a TPD claim approved. Clearly, you could seek to contest the decision if your claim is rejected, but doing so is frequently expensive and may not be successful. Splatt Lawyers will provide you with the best chance of success.
