Maximising your TPD benefit is crucial for your finance. That’s why, as a TPD lawyer in Melbourne I want to help you understand how our legal services can assist you. In this post, I’ll explain the ins and outs of TPD claims, and how our team can help you navigate the claims process and achieve a positive outcome.
What is a TPD Claim?
TPD stands for “Total and Permanent Disability,” a TPD claim is a type of insurance claim made when you are no longer able to work due to an injury or illness. The injury (either physical or psychological) or illness is not required to be work related or due to someone else’s negligence.
In Melbourne, TPDlaims are typically made through a person’s superannuation fund since around 90% of the TPD policies are provided through superannuation funds. If you become totally and permanently disabled, you can make a claim on your insurance policy to receive a lump sum payment.
Are you Eligible for a TPD claim?
To be eligible, you must have an injury or illness that prevents you from working within your usual occupation or any other occupation you are suited for based on your education, training, or experience.
Of course, our TPD lawyer during our free eligibility check will tell you your chances once you provide them with what your injury or illness is along with what education, training and experience you have. It does not necessarily have to be the most serious injury or illness, but rather, what injury or illness you have and how that injury or illness can prevent you from working within what work you are suited in by your education, training or experience.
