TPD & Death Benefits Claims

If you’ve become injured or unwell and have had to stop working permanently, you may be eligible to make a TPD claim – which you may also have heard referred to as superannuation claims. Total and Permanent Disability insurance exists to provide a lump sum payment if you can no longer work in your usual occupation, and your injuries or illness mean you’re also unable to take up another type of employment.

When you call our TPD insurance solicitors for advice, they will take additional factors into account in assessing your eligibility for a claim, such as your qualifications, experience, and training. If you have become unwell or injured, do not worry if you have not got a TPD-specific insurance policy. Insurance for TPD sometimes exists as a stand-alone policy, but it can also form part of your superannuation. People do not always know that they have TPD insurance, so it is vitally important you check all of your documents carefully – and the best policy is to give us a call today on 1800 960 096. Our total permanent disability dispute lawyers are waiting to advise you about your claim.


Death Benefits claims

By defailt in Australia most superannuation funds offer life insurance – which is also often referred to as death benefits. This type of compensation is designed to provide financially for your dependants and loved ones if you pass away. The emotional effect of a family death can be devastating, and that is often made worse if the deceased was relied on as a provider too.

In some cases, it is possible to claim death benefits while you are still alive – for instance, if you have a terminal illness. If you are the dependant of someone who has passed, we may be able to help you to your entitlement of all or part of their super contributions, and any associated death benefits. If you were either wholly or partly reliant on the deceased financially, you might be entitled to make a claim.

For a broad range of advice about death benefits, please don’t hesitate to call our friendly TPD and death benefits team on 1800 960 096 today. We know that taking care of your family means everything to you, and we are here when you need a little help with that.

Why come to KINGSLEY LAWSON LAWYERS when you make a TPD or Death Benefits claim?

Our insurance claim lawyers help many people just like you, and we know that TPD and Death Benefits claims come at an already difficult point in your life. We promise to quickly review your policy so that we can determine your eligibility and complete your claim with as little additional stress as possible. We will also endeavour to assist you with arranging any supporting material the insurer requires – such as employer statements and medical reports.

Different superannuation funds and the various insurers all have their own slightly different rules and define TPD uniquely, so it is crucial you get the right advice. We have a wealth of experience in the field, and our dedicated experts will quickly identify your policy along with what is needed to resolve your case quickly.

Once your TPD claim is prepared and lodged, in most cases, the insurer will request that you be examined by its own medical expert. At this point, the insurer may also request additional information. They will then assess your claim and decide either to accept or deny it.

A TPD claim can be rejected for various technical reasons.  Some claims are denied because the insurer’s interpretation of the terms of the policy means they consider the request to be invalid. Cases like this are often a result of discrepancies between medical reports and the exact wording of the policy. In cases where your claim is denied by the insurer, our lawyers will assess and guide, evaluating the options for challenging the decision.
