Do you have a plan in place to protect your family and finances should you fall unexpectedly ill or suffer injury? If you are unable to work for at least three months, Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) can help by paying you a lump sum to use at your discretion – whether that’s covering medical bills, paying the mortgage or helping with the transition to a new job or lifestyle.
Features and benefits
For your convenience, TPD can be purchased on its own or combined with and/or Life. It includes:
- Death Benefit, which pays you $10,000 if you have a stand-alone TPD Cover policy and there is no other TPD Cover benefit payable on your death.
- Severe Hardship Booster Benefit, which pays a higher TPD Cover benefit if you suffer specific conditions.
- Accommodation Benefit, which covers the cost of accommodating a family member to be near you should you be confined to a bed away from home.
- Financial Planning Benefit, which helps cover the cost of financial planning following a TPD claim payment.
- Interim Accident Cover, which covers you for accidents while we’re processing your application.
- Loyalty Bonus Benefit, which rewards you by paying a 5% higher TPD benefit after five years.
- Indexation Benefit, which increases your cover in line with inflation each year.
- TPD Cover for homemakers, which allows cover for stay-at-home parents.
For some specific illnesses, claims will be considered from day one rather than the usual three months.
