Superannuation Claims

Are you aware of your rights when it comes to making a claim for insured benefits attached to your superannuation? If the answer is no, you're not alone. Here we have answered some of the most common questions related to TPD.

TPD insurance cover explained

Many people don't realise that along with the money their employer contributes to super on their behalf, they may also have insurance cover for what is known as Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD). If you have had to cease working as a result of an illness or injury then you may be entitled to claim these benefits.

These benefits are paid in a lump sum and are usually several times your account balance and can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars.

What happens if I have a number of different superannuation funds?

If you are a member of different funds, you may also have insurance cover under each of these funds and have the potential to make multiple claims. At Firths we investigate these claims on your behalf to see if you do have this cover.

What if my claim is declined?
