Insurance and TPD Superannuation Claims Lawyers in Sydney


If you are injured or suffer an illness or medical condition that prevents you from returning to work, it can significantly impact your life and livelihood.

Most people are unaware that they hold a Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) policy through their superannuation. This insurance covers you if you are unable to work due to an injury or illness. A TPD claim can give you the money you need for your financial security. If you are unable to work due to an injury or illness, you may also be able to claim against an income protection policy to help you with your ongoing medical expenses and costs of living.

TPD claims can be paid as a one-off lump sum payment, or alternatively, some funds pay annual instalments on the basis you continue to be deemed as totally and permanently disabled.

Different insurance policies have their own set of terms and conditions that apply so it is important to speak to an experienced TPD lawyer in Sydney who can provide you with accurate advice relating to your personal situation.

FAQs – Superannuation, Insurance and TPD Claims

If you are unable to work because you are injured, ill or have a medical condition, you may be eligible to make a superannuation claim.

Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to claim:

  • Total and Permanent Disability (TPD)
  • Income Protection
  • Life Insurance

Life insurance

Life insurance can provide your next of kin, or nominated beneficiary, a lump sum payment in the event of the insured person’s death. 


Regardless of whether you can work or not, you may be eligible to make a trauma claim if you have suffered an injury, medical condition, or illness.

We will be able to determine your eligibility once you grant us the permission to make enquiries on your behalf. Our Sydney Superannuation Claims Lawyers can then give you personalised advice about your potential entitlements.

For TPD claims, you must demonstrate that you are unable to work because of injury or illness, and that your medical condition and incapacity for work fit the terms of your TPD policy (i.e. that you cannot return to work in any occupation, or that you cannot return to work in your usual occupation). We can review your TPD policy to help you understand what terms and conditions apply to you.

For Income Protection claims, you must demonstrate that you are unable to work because your injury or illness currently prevents you from doing so.

For Life Insurance or Trauma claims, you must demonstrate that the terms of the policy are met. We can review your policy to help you understand what terms and conditions apply.

Every policy is different. It is vital to your claim that you obtain legal advice at the earliest opportunity to discuss your entitlements. Attwood Marshall Lawyers are here to help you access and protect what you are entitled to.

Your benefits will be paid by your insurer.

Your entitlements will be determined by what is stipulated in your insurance policy.

Most superannuation and TPD claims take between 6 and 18 months to settle. More serious or complex claims may take longer, whilst some claims can be paid out quite quickly.

If your claim is rejected, you will have the opportunity to appeal the insurer’s decision. If your appeal is unsuccessful, you may be able to take the matter to court.
