Perth Superannuation Lawyers

Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) 

If you are unable to work due to an injury or illness that has resulted in complete or partial disability, then you may be entitled to a lump sum amount of 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 of benefit you are liable to will depend on the terms of your TPD insurance. Our TPD lawyers will guide you in filing a TPD claim against your superannuation fund to get you the payment you deserve.

Income Protection 

If an illness or injury has made you temporarily unable to work, then the Income Protection Insurance can provide you with ‘salary benefits’ even when you are not working. Under this scheme, the employee will continue to receive a salaried monthly income for a short duration when they are unable to work. 

Depending on the terms and conditions of the insurance, there might be a minimum waiting period before you start receiving the monthly payments. Typically, an employee is paid about 75% of their pre-disability income. But the amount may differ based on the terms of the policy.

Death/Terminal Illness Benefit

Some superannuation funds also have life insurance policies for their employees in case of an unexpected death or a terminal illness. Under such schemes, the total amount in a superannuation account is paid to the listed beneficiary of the employee – usually their spouse or children. This lump sum payment can help a grieving family to manage their expenses, such as paying the mortgage and other bills.
