Superannuation & Insurance

If you or a family member can’t work due to illness or injury you may be eligible for a total and permanent disablement (TPD) lump sum from your superannuation fund or a private disability insurance fund. This is called a TPD claim.

Most Super funds provide insurance benefits. Many Australians are not aware that they have TPD insurance in their super fund. They may also have death benefits and in many cases, income protection insurance. 

Hall Payne has the expert legal advice needed to understand the complex definitions within your individual insurance policy, whether it be through your Super or a private fund

For decades our lawyers have helped with:

  • Lodging superannuation and TPD claims;
  • Appealing rejected TPD claims;
  • death benefit claims; and
  • income protection claims.

We can help you lodge your initial claim and also dispute decisions.

Under some circumstances, we offer services on a “no win, no-fee” basis.

If you’ve had a rejected TPD or income protection claim, your claim is taking too long or you’re unsure how to lodge your super disability claim, contact one of our Super & insurance lawyers.
