    About TPD Claims

    In Australia, you can make one or more total and permanent disability claims if you have an illness, injury, or medical condition (including mental illness) that stops you from working in your usual occupation. Usually, your TPD insurance entitlements are held as a superannuation insurance policy, but you may also have coverage through a private insurance company.

    Winning a TPD claim through a superannuation policy or as part of a personal injury claim will give you a TPD lump sum payment. Thankfully, an insurance payout can help fund your life until you can access your superannuation fund retirement income stream.

Settlement fees are typically calculated as a percentage of the total settlement amount and can vary by firm.

    Successful TPD Claim FAQs

    Some hard-working Aussies have contributed to multiple superannuation funds during their careers. Changing jobs often results in people forgetting their insurance cover through multiple superannuation funds. Thankfully, people in this situation can be eligible to make more than one for the same permanent disability.

    Ask Aussie Injury Lawyers to investigate your circumstances, explain the claim process, and determine your potential benefit amount. It’s free to know where you stand.

    How do I know if I can make a TPD claim?

    You can make a TPD claim when an illness, injury, or mental illness permanently makes you unable to work, and you have permanent disability insurance cover. Unlike a workers’ compensation claim, your medical condition does not need to be work-related. However, to have a TPD claim approved, you will need to provide medical evidence that satisfies your policy definitions.

    That’s when experienced TPD lawyers can assist. A specialist TPD lawyer will help you understand the eligibility criteria and if you have a valid claim.

    How much compensation do I get for a successful claim?

    The value of the insurance benefits included in your superannuation fund policy determines how much compensation you receive for a TPD insurance payout. If you qualify to file multiple TPD claims, you will have a substantially higher lump sum payment.

    Aussie Injury Lawyers will investigate your TPD insurance terms at no charge and advise how much you can expect for an approved TPD claim. Get started now by calling 1300 873 252

    Anyone in Australia can file a TPD claim without a lawyer’s assistance. However, when it comes to paying TPD benefits, an insurance company will often seek to minimise or deny liability. They typically challenge your medical reports and other evidence that satisfies your TPD definition.

    Life insurance claim data from APRA, shows that more than 20% of TPD claims are denied annually. And, of course, many of the approved claimants had effective legal representation. So, your best chance of a successful outcome is to work with the support of an expert TPD lawyer.

    What is the average TPD payout in Australia?

    How long does it take to settle a TPD claim?

    Most TPD claims are settled between six and 12 months. However, some complex cases (typically with large payouts) can take up to two years. That’s because insurance companies are more likely to challenge large insurance claims.
