Total Permanent & Disability Insurance
The goal of TPD is to provide policy holders a cash benefit when the life insured suffers serious illness or injury and is unable to work again. When structuring TPD, we look at specific costs to cover such as school fees, debts, general expenses, and other large expenses which may occur.
TPD is available for most people with insurers restricting the age between 65 and 75. Typically, insurance obtained through a financial planner has far superior coverage than group insurance in superannuation and direct insurance obtained over the phone or internet.
TPD benefits are typically paid in the form of a tax free lump sum and pays a benefit when somebody satisfies the definition of TPD, where there are two types:
- Own Occupation; and
- Any Occupation
Own Occupation TPD provides a benefit where the life insured is unable to work again in their own or normal occupation.
Any Occupation provides a benefit where the insured is unable to work again in any occupation, where they may have reasonable education, training or experience. Typically, we would consider Any Occupation for specialists such as our Doctor clients.
