Eligibility & Benefits
Many people are unaware that they may be covered in the event of sickness or accident. It is important to check this information with your insurer to see what may be available. You may be eligible for Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD), Income Protection (IP), Sickness Benefit, Disability Benefit or Permanent Incapacity. Often these benefits can be paid in addition to other forms of insurance such as motor vehicle payments and work injury payments.
All superannuation companies are different and have different criteria for access to these benefits. It is important to seek legal advice about the benefits of each policy. There are time limits that may apply to certain Superannuation Policies when you have not been in employment for more than 2 years.
Furthermore, there is usually a waiting period depending on Superannuation Company of 3 months from the date you last performed any work. The Superannuation Company’s Policy and their Insurer’s Policy are often very complex and difficult to navigate. At Mahony’s Lawyers, we have extensive experience in dealing with Superannuation Companies and Insurers and providing effective results for our clients.
