Superannuation Insurance Claim Lawyers

If you can’t work due to an illness or injury, our expert superannuation lawyers help you make an insurance claim through your Super or other insurance policy, on a 100% No Win No Fee basis. 

Superannuation Insurance Claims

You could make a superannuation claim through your disability or life insurance policies and get a lump sum payment when you can’t work due to an injury or illness.

As an Aussie worker, you have a retirement superannuation account funded by your employer. If you become injured or ill, you may be able to access a range of insurance benefits contained within your superannuation fund membership.

Most people have insurance attached to their superannuation accounts. You may be eligible to claim when you are injured or ill and off work. Furthermore, your health condition does not have to be related to your job, as with a workers’ compensation claim.

Insurance claims can be complicated but worth pursuing, with lump-sum payouts ranging between $1 million and $ 5,000 (as a rough guide). So, our dedicated insurance lawyers will help you make a claim to access your superannuation insurance benefits, 100% no win, no fee.

How your injury or illness occurred makes no difference

You could still have a claim, no matter how you acquired your illness, injury, or mental health condition. People on a disability pension, receiving NDIS, with a worker’s compensation or car accident claim, and those with a severe medical condition preventing them from working could all have a viable claim.

You might have more than one Insurance Claim

The number and type of Superannuation and insurance claims you can have are depend on the insurance cover contained within your Super policy. These could include:

Superannuation Fund Waiting Periods

Waiting periods can apply before you lodge a claim with your Superannuation provider. The period may vary depending on the type of claim and the nature of your illness or injury. Our experienced legal team help you understand your unique situation when contacting us.

Your Benefit Payment does not come from your Superannuation account

When you get paid a benefit from an insurance claim, the money you receive is not taken from the funds in your existing Super account. Your payout will be taken from an insurance policy contained within your Superannuation – you can relax knowing your current Super balance won’t be impacted by your claim.

Get Legal Help With Claiming Superannuation Insurance Benefits

There are different terms and conditions in each insurance policy. However, for your claim to be successful, you’ll need to prove that you’ve been unable to work for at least 3 or 6 months due to an injury or illness. Generally, you must prove the following:

  1. You have a permanent disability
  2. You cannot do a job based on your experience, education, or training.
  3. The inability to work stems from your injury or illness.

Superannuation Funds Statement

Your superannuation fund’s most recent member statement may tell you what level of Income Protection or Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) coverage you have. For private policies, your insurance policy schedule will confirm your coverage.

To determine how much your claim is worth, we need to examine your facts. We can help you understand the criteria you need to meet to receive your insurance benefits.

Superannuation is a type of long-term savings scheme designed to provide Australians with a reliable source of income during retirement. This programme is subject to certain legal obligations because it is controlled by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and has government regulations.

One of these requirements is your employer paying compulsory superannuation contributions. Another is the responsible management of your superannuation fund, thus ensuring you have protected retirement savings.

When you have a successful super injury claim, the value of your lump sum payment relies on several factors including:

  • The type of insurance claim

  • Your current salary

  • Your age at the time of injury

  • The value of your insurance cover
