You may be entitled to a total and permanent disability claim or an income protection claim to receive disability insurance. This is also known as "Total and Permanent Disability," "Total and Temporary Disability" and "Income Protection and Salary Continuance."
With disability claim compensation, it is important to understand that the injury or illness does not have to be caused within the workplace.
At Adams McWilliams Solicitors, we are experienced in total and permanent disability (TPD) claims and can help you understand your rights and get you the compensation that you are due.
Total and Permanent Disability Insurance provides a lump sum payment to somebody that has suffered injury or illness and is permanently prevented from returning to work, education or training.
What is Total and Temporary Disability Insurance (TTD)?
Total and Temporary Disability Insurance provides a monthly payment where a person, due to injury or illness, is prevented from returning to work within their usual occupation. This also applies if they have to reduce their usual hours of work.
Life insurance provides a lump sum payment when a person is diagnosed with a critical or terminal illness or dies.
Disability insurance is usually found through your superannuation fund. However, it may also be found outside of superannuation, under an individual insurance plan. Contact us for a free, no obligation investigation into your disability insurance entitlements or your superannuation.
