Do you require assistance with a superannuation claim?

If you are injured on the job, whist working or even developed a medical condition that has caused you to cease working, you may be entitled to a lump sum payment from your superannuation fund.

This form of lump sum compensation comes from a Total and Permanent Disablement Claim. Most working individuals have Total and Permanent Disablement insurance as part of their superannuation and do not know it.

You may also be able to access your superannuation prior to retirement age. Your injury does not have to be from work or a transport accident.

At YourLawyer, our lawyers will check your policy and check your cover at no cost to you. If you do have insurance, we will complete your claim on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.

Your date of injury is classified as the day you are diagnosed or the last day you worked. Even if your insurance has lapsed, if you had insurance as of your date of injury we will be able to make a claim.
