Robert Algie Robert Algie

So you've had to stop work due to illness or injury.

We understand how stressful that can be. That's why we offer to check your insurances and superannuation for free - because it's possible you'll be able to make a Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) claim. Let Robert Algie explain why you should take a closer look.

What is TPD insurance?

Total and permanent disability insurance, or TPD insurance, is designed to provide a lump sum of money in circumstances where the person covered becomes totally and permanently disabled.

In the competition for members, many superannuation providers offer TPD insurance as part of their offering.

How does it benefit me?

Entitlements take the form of a lump sum payment. You may also be eligible for ongoing benefits if you independently purchased income protection.

The best way to know is to talk with experts in the field, and that’s where we come in.

What do I need to do?

  1. Contact us and we can check over your policies free of charge.
  2. You can also check your super statement. Total and Permanent Disability Insurance should be listed with your death benefits.

Did you know?

Many superannuation providers also provide a death benefit for members should they pass away as well as total and permanent disability insurance which can normally be found in the same portion of the superannuation statement as the death benefit.
