If you are in Tasmania and find yourself unable to work due to injury or illness, you may be entitled to make a TPD claim or an alternate claim through your super fund.

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in injury law, including superannuation insurance claims.

It costs nothing to call us for an initial review of your case so we can advise you of all the claims you may be eligible to make. Time limits apply to these claims, so it’s important to call us as early as possible.

Most people in Tasmania with superannuation will have TPD insurance and maybe also income protection insurance. Unfortunately, the claims process can often be complicated and stressful, particularly when you are struggling with injury or illness. A small error or missed detail can result in your claim being delayed or denied.

Lionheart Lawyers are experts in TPD, superannuation and income protection insurance claims and will help you gather all the necessary documentation and lodge your claim correctly to ensure you receive all the entitlements available to you. For instance, even if you are already receiving workers compensation or Centrelink benefits, you may still be entitled to additional payments.

If your TPD or income protection claim is denied or only partly accepted by the insurer and you want to dispute their decision, contact us.

Tasmania TPD Insurance Claims

Most people with superannuation in Tasmania have TPD or total and permanent disability cover as part of their policy.

If you are struck with an illness or injury that prevents you from working in your current position or another suitable position, you may be eligible to make a TPD claim.

Your illness or injury does not have to be work-related or accident-related to be eligible for a Tasmanian TPD insurance claim.

Examples of injuries or illnesses that may lead to a successful claim include:

  • Heart conditions;
  • Degenerative conditions, such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s;
  • Back injury;
  • Psychological illness such as anxiety, depression or PTSD;
  • Cancer; and
  • Many other illnesses and injuries.

Claiming Income Protection in Tasmania

Many Tasmanians will also have income protection insurance as part of their superannuation plan. In some cases, income protection is purchased as a separate policy. You may not even realise you are covered.

Income protection is designed to provide regular payments to support you in the event that you are unable to work due to illness or injury.

Lodging a claim, especially when the process is new to you, can be complicated and overwhelming.

This is where Lionheart Lawyers can help. Our experienced professionals will check your policy to identify exactly what you are entitled to claim. We will submit your claim on your behalf to maximise your entitlements.

Tasmania Superannuation Insurance Lawyers

Superannuation insurance policies in Tasmania may cover claims such as total and permanent disability, income protection, trauma insurance, and terminal illness claims.

If you need to make a claim, contact us as soon as possible after your injury or illness.

We will:

  1. Listen to you carefully to understand the full extent of your illness or injury and the impact it has had on your ability to work;
  2. Review your superannuation and other policies and pinpoint all the claims you are entitled to make;
  3. Compile evidence to support your claim, including medical reports, documentation from WorkCover, Centrelink and other parties;
  4. Work with you to finalise your claim and then submit it to the relevant insurer on your behalf;
  5. Advise you on the types of payments you may expect to receive if your claim is successful – for instance, regular monthly payments or a lump-sum payment;
  6. Follow the progress of your claim through to completion, and if it is successful, ensure you are paid as quickly as possible.
