Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) 

If an illness or injury has resulted in complete or partial disability and made you unable to work, you may be liable to a large payment as part of your TPD insurance. 

Based on the terms of your insurance, your disability may be defined as: 

  • Being unable to work in ‘your’ occupation
  • Being unable to work in ‘any’ occupation

The amount you are liable to receive will depend on the terms and conditions of your TPD insurance.

Income Protection 

If you are temporarily unable to work due to an illness or injury, then you may be liable to get ‘monthly salaried benefits’ under the Income Protection Insurance scheme. This means the employee will receive a monthly income for the duration they cannot work. 

Typically, an employee is paid about 75% of their pre-disability income as part of this scheme. But the amount may differ based on the terms of the policy. There might also be a minimum waiting period before they start receiving the monthly payments. 

Death/Terminal Illness Benefit

Certain companies also include a life insurance policy for their employees within their superannuation funds. In the case of an unexpected death or a terminal illness, the employer has to pay the balance amount remaining in their superannuation account to the listed beneficiary of the employee – usually their spouse or children. This lump sum payment can help the family manage critical expenses like house mortgage and other bills.

Since July 1, 2023, the Superannuation Guarantee (SG) rate for every employer has gone up from the previous 10.5% to now 11%. This refers to the minimum amount employers must contribute to their employees’ super funds. This change in the law will impact the superannuation contributions your employer makes to your fund.

Superannuation is paid by both the employee and the employer. The employee contributes a certain portion of their income, and the employer must pay 11 percent of their basic wages. The superannuation fund, on behalf of the member, invests this amount so it can increase over time. To know more about the payment terms of your superannuation funds, get in touch with our lawyers.
