If you or a family member has suffered an injury, illness or disablement and are unable to work, you may be able to access benefits from your superannuation insurance policy. You may also be able to access contributions made to your superannuation fund.
Many superannuation funds contain insurance policies that may allow you to claim disability benefits for Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) or Total and Temporary Disablement (TTD).
Your disablement does not need to have been work-related or caused by anyone's fault.
Our Superannuation Claims lawyers can help with a claim for
- Temporary or permanent disability
- Terminal illness
- Death benefit
- Income protection insurance
What are my options?
To claim a lump sum benefit from your superannuation policy you will generally need to provide medical evidence that the injury or illness has prevented you from working in any occupation for which you are suited by education, training or experience.
Some workers may be able to access insurance benefits through their employer, enterprise bargaining agreement, employment contract, or through a financial institution.
