Total and Permanent Disablement

If you’re injured or have an illness that means you can’t work again, you may find yourself in financial difficulties. That’s why many people take out total and permanent disability insurance. It can give you an income that’s similar to what you would’ve earned if you’d died because of the injury or illness. When you die, life insurance is there to support your family and total and permanent disability insurance is there to cover you and your family while you’re still alive.

Total and Permanent Disability Insurance Covers You If You Can’t Work

If you’re injured or have an illness that makes it impossible for you to work again, total and permanent disability insurance can give you and your family financial protection.

Most total and permanent disability insurance claims often involve a dispute about whether you can continue working eventually or not. In some cases, it’s fairly straight forward For example if you’re a quadriplegic it may be quite obvious from the outset whether or not you’ll be able to continue working. But most cases can be more complex and it isn’t always clear whether or not you’ll ever be able to return to work.

In most cases, a claim for total and permanent disability insurance will be made through your superannuation fund. This means that your superannuation fund and insurer will both probably investigate your claim. Every claim will need to be investigated, so there’s no need to be alarmed. They’ll need to make reasonable enquiries so that they can properly decide your claim.

The actual claims process shouldn’t feel like a dispute or an “us versus them” process. You don’t have to prove your claim, in fact the onus is on your insurer and superannuation fund to properly investigate your claim so they can make a fully informed decision. They also can’t delay their decision unnecessarily. Under the law they must make a decision reasonably quickly so you can have some certainty.

“I would just like to thank you for your hard work and understanding during a very stressful time for myself.I cannot thank you enough for the work and advice you provided. My assault and stalking and intimidation charges were heard by the Magistrate at Liverpool Court yesterday, Tuesday 16th. I pleaded guilty to the assault with the stalking being dropped prior by way of representations made by you. The Magistrate seen through the bullshit supplied by the Police facts sheet and I am happy to say no conviction was recorded. He stated it was “a molehill turned into a mountain by police”. John I would just like to say your professionalism on both of my criminal and family law matters was outstanding. I would go so far as to say its the best service I have ever had.
