Article content If, as a result of your injury or illness, you are unable to ever again work in any job for which you are suited, given your education, training and experience, you may be entitled to lodge a Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) claim. If eligible, a lump sum payment will be made to you. The intention is to provide financial support whilst you are unable to work. The amount of the payment depends on the extent of your cover and your eligibility. If you are unable to undertake your normal work for a certain period, some superannuation funds will offer a Total and Temporary Disability (TTD) payment. These are normally paid weekly or monthly. Payments are a percentage of your wage and paid for a limited period only. Please contact National Compensation Lawyers to discuss your claim with a lawyer direct on 1300 FEARLESS (1300 332 753).
