Your employer will pay compulsory superannuation into your account when you are working in Australia. Contained within your superannuation fund will be several insurances that offer you financial protection if the unexpected happens. If you cannot work for some reason, you may have access to various insurance benefits. The good news is, that your medical condition does not need to be connected to your workplace or occupation to claim your insurance entitlements, and our skilled superannuation claim lawyers can help.
Claiming compensation from your insurance company can be complex and challenging, but it is worth pursuing. Your lump-sum payout can be substantial. An average figure would be $500,000. Be aware that your payout is not taken from your superannuation account when you have a successful insurance claim. Instead, the funds come from an insurance policy.

Superannuation is a compulsory Australian government retirement savings scheme intended to assist everyday workers with their retirement planning. Due to the superannuation guarantee, your boss is responsible for contributing to a superannuation fund on your behalf, based on a percentage of your pay. In addition, workers can choose to make additional contributions to their superannuation accounts.
Superannuation is designed to offer Australians a source of income once they retire. Typically, income is received as a one-time payout or pension funds on a regular basis. Superannuation funds have mandatory rules and regulations to safeguard your savings and reduce the risk of fraud and misuse.
If you are like most other working Aussies, you will have at least one superannuation policy. Your super account includes several disability insurance policies that provide protection in the case of unforeseen events. Depending on your coverage you could have:
Note: Submitting an insurance claim through your superannuation will not decrease the amount of your retirement savings. When you successfully claim benefits, payment will be made from an insurance policy included with super fund membership.
When you are incapable of doing your usual job anymore because you are either physically or mentally injured or ill, you could be eligible to claim your insurance benefits. How you acquired your medical condition does not matter. Other Queenslanders have had successful insurance payouts for:

√ When you were working, your employer paid compulsory superannuation into your account.

Regardless of how you acquired your sickness, injury, or mental health problem, you may still make a claim. People who get NDIS funds or a disability pension could already have a case. If you receive workers’ compensation payments or have a motor vehicle accident claim, you might also have an insurance claim. Anyone with a severe medical condition that prohibits them from working may also have a plausible case.
When you have an accepted disability insurance claim, your benefits could be paid in several ways, depending on your insurance. These include:
When you have a successful disability insurance settlement, the funds are not taken from a superannuation account. You can rest assured that your payout won’t impact your current super balance. Relax knowing that compensation is taken from an insurance policy contained within your superannuation.
Each superannuation insurance policy has specific terms and conditions. To have a successful claim, you must demonstrate the following:
Your Super Fund’s most recent member statement may outline the extent of your Life Insurance, Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) or Income Protection coverage. If you have insurance covered under a privately held policy, check your schedule for your coverage.
Your insurance claim lawyer will support you in accessing your Super fund details and forensically examines the facts.
We’ll talk with you to learn more about your medical condition and your circumstances. They will outline the claim process and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
We will gather evidence to support your claim, as soon as you give Splatt Injury Lawyers permission to handle your case. Some sources we may use are your taxation records, Workcover files or Centrelink data.
If necessary, you will meet with a doctor for a medical assessment.
We will create your legal documents and lodge them with your superannuation and insurer once we have everything we require to complete your submission.
When we achieve the desired result, your insurer will deposit your funds in your super account, where you can withdraw them whenever you like. If your claim is rejected, our lawyers or solicitors will work to have the decision overturned.

Suppose you’ve been injured or ill and unable to work for three months due to a medical condition or accident. In that case, you may be able to access compensation under Australia’s Superannuation Guarantee (SG), Income Protection Insurance (IPI) or Disability Support Pension (DSP). You’ll need to meet specific criteria to qualify for a payment. Splatt Lawyers provide a free claim assessment. It costs nothing to understand your eligibility to claim.
The value of your compensation benefit will vary depending on your medical condition and insurance policy terms and conditions. However, most insurance policies are designed to provide some financial assistance during illness or injury. This support could be a lump-sum payment or a monthly benefit. If you qualify for a TPD lump-sum payout, an average value is approximately $ 500,000.
For many years, we have supported Queenslanders with disability and superannuation claims. We advise on trauma claims, terminal illness claims, TPD claim and income protection claims.

In Australia, these types of cases generally settle within a period of several months to 18 months.
Your policy conditions will outline the time limit for lodging your super insurance claim. In general, you must submit your case as soon as possible after you stop working due to your illness or disability. However, in most cases, you can submit a claim years after you stop working.
Be aware that there are strict time limits for disputing a rejected insurance claim. In this situation, you must seek legal advice immediately.
