TPD is an insurance benefit available under a superannuation fund. This is available in addition to the contributions (account balance) made by the employer/fund member. The Superannuation Complaints Tribunal, generally defines TPD as to whether or not a person will ever again be able to work for reward or engage in any gainful employment he/she is reasonably qualified by education, training or experience as a result of an injury or illness. However, each superannuation fund defines TPD with some differences to the above definition so each fund s trust deed and/or insurance policy will need to be carefully reviewed to ensure that the criteria of that fund has been met. We can assist you in submitting the strongest possible claim to the superannuation fund.
