Getting Advice on your CTP Claim

Could you be missing out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in entitlements? [checked]

Do I need a CTP claims lawyer to find out what benefits I am missing out on? [checked]

TPD coverage commonly provides financial benefits to those who are no longer able to work in their usual occupation or any other occupation they are reasonably suited to due to mental or physical disability or ill health.

While you may not remember signing up for TPD alongside your industry super paperwork, life insurance policy or SMSF, many funds and providers include TPD coverage as a default. If you have more than one superannuation account, in addition to private life insurance or a SMSF, it may be possible to make a claim against each open policy in your name.

For those who are very seriously injured, or who were not working at the time of disability, other definitions can also be relevant. In these cases a definition is usually based around not being able to perform personal care or the activities of daily living such as feeding, walking, dressing and showering.
