Our Total Permanent Disability (TPD) claims process is well organised and easy to follow.

The TPD claim process and that for income protection and death benefit claims requires detailed submissions to be made to the fund insurer. We will need certificates signed by your medical physicians and may refer you for further independent medical opinions to substantiate your claim.

Each and every TPD insurance claim must be handled with utmost care. According to the circumstances of the deceased, their family's circumstances, the complexity of the fund's insurance policy, and the cooperation—or lack thereof—from the superannuation fund involved, the filings that go with each claim vary from one to the next. The processing of TPD claims is conducted on a no-win, no-fee basis.

Our experienced team is well-equipped to handle the complexities of TPD claims. We understand that this process can be stressful and emotionally draining for you and your family. That is why we are dedicated to providing you with the assistance and guidance you require throughout the claim process.

We will work closely with you to gather all of the necessary documentation and information required by the fund insurer in order to initiate your TPD claim. Medical reports, hospital records, and any other relevant evidence that supports your claim may be included. Our team will thoroughly review these documents to ensure that they are complete and compelling.

To strengthen your claim, we may need to obtain additional medical opinions from independent experts in some cases. These professionals will carefully evaluate your medical condition, taking into account its impact on your ability to work and perform daily activities. Their unbiased assessments will provide valuable insights that will help to substantiate your claim.

We recognise that no two TPD claims are the same, as each situation presents its own set of challenges. Our team will tailor our approach to your specific needs while keeping the complexities of your fund's insurance policy in mind. We will navigate any obstacles and challenges that may arise while advocating tirelessly on your behalf.


Compile information for initial claims

Careful attention to detail is required throughout claim preparation. We take the time to get all the information from you up front because of this.

Your claim will be filed as soon as we get your information from you and signed consents authorising the transfer of documents and information to us.


Getting your Personal Policy Documents

Once you have given us all the required information, we will start gathering information on the benefits that are available as well as the paperwork needed to substantiate your claim.

The relevant policy papers for superannuation funds are included in this.


Review of your Superannuation Fund policy

Every every policy paper is distinctive and has to be carefully examined. At this stage, we will carefully examine your specific policy and provide you advice on what you are eligible to claim and what requirements you must satisfy before your claim can be paid.


Complete your Initial Claim

We will put together a comprehensive submission in support of your claim and submit it to your fund(s) together with any necessary supporting materials. You must be completely and open when telling us about all of your employment, education, and training activities.

A certificate stating that you are fully and permanently handicapped from two different treating medical professionals, as well as, in some cases, a certificate from your employer, are typically required by superannuation funds.


Lodging your Claim

In support of your TPD claim, we will compile the medical documentation and create submissions for your super fund. You might have to go through an independent medical evaluation by a doctor chosen by the fund. When they receive your claim, they need to give you a rough idea of how long it will take them to decide.

How Can TPD Lawyers Help You with your TPD Claims?

Total Permanent Disability (TPD)

If you have been unable to work due to an injury or sickness and are unlikely to return to work within your education, training, or experience, you may file a TPD claim.

Unlike other types of damage claims, you do not have to prove that the injury or sickness was caused by someone else or that it was work-related when filing a TPD claim.

You will still be eligible for benefits if you are unable to work owing to a sickness such as cancer or an organic mental health disease such as bipolar disorder.

You may be eligible for TPD compensation if you can show that you are unable to do your regular job or any other employment that is within your training and experience.

You do not have to show that you are unqualified for all responsibilities; only those that your education and experience qualify you to do.

Permanent Impairment Claims

A permanent impairment occurs when you have a permanent loss or damage, loss of use or malfunction of a portion of your body, or even a loss of an internal biological function.

You may be entitled to further compensation if you were injured as a consequence of someone else's negligence.

Medical professionals conduct a clinical examination to assess the worker's limitations before consulting impairment tables to arrive at a permanent impairment figure when determining the degree of permanent impairment.

This figure is used as an approximate approximation of the percentage of bodily function lost as a result of the accident or illness.

Some compensation schemes require claimants to reach a certain degree of disability before receiving a payout.
