Superannuation & TPD Lawyers in Brisbane
If you have been injured and are unable to work, you may be entitled to receive compensation through your superannuation or through the Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance that is often included as a benefit in superannuation policies. While the process of claiming this compensation can be complex, a Superannuation and TPD lawyer can help you to navigate the system and maximise your chances of receiving the full amount to which you are entitled. In particular, a Superannuation and TPD lawyer can help you to:
- Understand your rights and entitlements under your superannuation policy or the relevant legislation;
- Gather evidence to support your claim;
- Negotiate with the insurer on your behalf; and
- Appeal a decision if your claim is denied.
If you have been injured and are struggling to cope financially, don’t hesitate to contact our Superannuation and TPD lawyers for advice on your options. With their expert knowledge and guidance, you could receive the compensation you need to get back on your feet.

What is superannuation?
Superannuation is a retirement savings plan that is offered by most employers in Australia. It allows employees to save money for their retirement, and also provides them with some income protection in the event of an injury or illness.
Most people are unaware that they may be entitled to superannuation benefits if they are unable to work due to an injury or illness. These benefits can provide you with a regular income stream, and can be used to cover the costs of your everyday living expenses.
What is a total permanent disability?
Total permanent disability (TPD) is a term used to describe an injury or illness that has left you completely unable to work. If you have been diagnosed with a TPD, you may be entitled to receive benefits from your superannuation fund.
Can I make a TPD claim if I am not working?
Yes. You can make a TPD claim even if you are not currently working. However, you will need to provide evidence that your injury or illness has prevented you from being able to work in the future.
What are the benefits of making a TPD claim?
The benefits of making a TPD claim include:
- Financial support to help you meet your everyday living expenses;
- Rehabilitation support to help you recover from your injury or illness;
- The peace of mind of knowing that you will be able to support yourself and your family if you are unable to work in the future.
How do I make a TPD claim?
If you think you may be entitled to TPD benefits, the first step is to contact your superannuation fund to find out more about their claims process. You will then need to provide them with evidence of your injury or illness, and any medical documentation you have.
Once your claim has been approved, you will receive a lump sum payment that can be used to cover the costs of your medical treatment, rehabilitation, and living expenses.
How can a lawyer help me with my TPD claim?
A personal injury lawyer can help you with your TPD claim in a number of ways, including:
- Advising you on your rights and entitlements;
- Assessing the evidence you will need to support your claim;
- Preparing and lodgings your claim with your superannuation fund;
- Representing you during the claims process;
- Appealing a decision if your claim is rejected;
- Negotiating a settlement with your superannuation fund.
