Suffering a permanent disability can be devastating to you and your family. Stacks are here to help you get your life back on track as quickly as possible, and with the compensation you deserve.
When you are injured or suffer illness to such an extent that you cannot return to work, you may be able to make a Total Permanent Disability (TPD) claim under your superannuation scheme. A TPD claim is a lump sum payment which can be used to help with medical costs, and to provide future income in the event that you can no longer support yourself.
All Australians now have compulsory superannuation cover and many of these policies include a death or disability benefit. Even so, many people who are injured forget to check whether they are covered for death or disability. It is not uncommon for someone to pursue a claim for compensation or damages following an accident, and then fail to consider whether they also have rights to a death or disability benefit under their compulsory superannuation scheme. This is one area where you are allowed to 'double dip' because your rights under the superannuation scheme are rights you have paid for with a premium deducted from your superannuation fund.
If you believe you are eligible for a TPD claim under your superannuation scheme, or need advice about pursuing a TPD claim that has been refused, Stacks compensation lawyers are here to help. We will assist you to get the compensation and financial support you deserve.
