Income Protection Insurance Legal Experts

We can help with claims related to:

Depending on your specific income protection insurance policy, your illness or injury may not have to be work-related in order to claim income protection. It might also include the following physical conditions:

  • Cancer or heart attack;
  • Sports injuries; or
  • Chronic illnesses/pain.

Making a Successful Income Protection Claim

To complete a successful income protection claim, you have to contact your insurer and employer once you find out that you can no longer work. These cases can be time sensitive, so it is essential you let them know right away. Next, you will need to fill out the appropriate documentation, such as:

  • Medical records explaining your injury or illness; 
  • Proof of income like pay stubs or tax returns, which shows your pre-disability earnings;
  • Any additional information like witness statements or any other medical assessments;
  • Income replacement employer report;
  • Tax file number declaration; and
  • Salary continuation report.

Our expert income protection lawyers will help you fill out the appropriate claim forms. By working alongside one of our lawyers, we can speed up this process and ensure it is filed correctly. Typically, your claim form requires your policy information, your injury/disability details, and any supporting information. 

From there, you can lodge the claim with your insurance provider. Throughout this process, make sure to stay on top of communication with your insurer as they can have questions or need more documents. 

Claiming Income Protection Through Your Super Fund

Many superannuation funds provide individuals with extra financial security by offering insurance against loss of income due to injury or illness. You may be able to pursue a total and permanent disability (TPD) claim if you have coverage through your superannuation fund. Make sure to seek legal advice on whether you are eligible to claim multiple TPD lump sums. 

Lionheart Lawyers have the experience and knowledge to assist you in lodging your TPD claim. Should the need arise, we can also challenge a declined claim, so you can maximise your entitled compensation.
