I have a lot of super funds. Can I claim on all of them?

Potentially. If you have more than one super fund that has TPD insurance cover, you might have more than one claim. We have acted for many people with two, three, four or more claims.

Do I have to resign before I claim a TPD benefit?

Most super funds do not require that you terminate your employment before lodging a claim. You should get advice before making any decisions about ending your employment.

If you have a compensation claim could you also have a TPD claim?

Absolutely. Many people with compensation claims are also entitled to a TPD benefit. Any amount you receive as a TPD benefit is usually in addition to any compensation you might be entitled to.
