The specific requirements to qualify for a TPD claim are generally spelled out by the insurer or trust. These types of lump sum payouts are designed so as to cover the living and medical expenses of a person who cannot work due to their illness or injury. These are normally paid on top of other weekly or monthly entitlements.
If you believe you qualify for a TPD payout, you will need to provide evidence to support your claim. The claims process can be complex, and involves time limitations. It can often be very difficult to satisfy the exact requirements of your insurer. Our experienced compensation lawyers can guide you through this process. Call us on 02 9708 2222 to discuss your claim today.
As with all compensation claims, you need to be aware of the time limitations in place for making a claim. Normally, these types of claims must be made within two years of the injury, or of your last day at work. To ensure that you meet the deadlines, it is recommended that you speak to one of our compensation law experts. Click here to read more about the claims process.
