Types of Cancer Claims in Australia

Checkup for types of cancer

If you are affected by Cancer, you are not alone – there is help out there.

It is essential to know about financial help for Cancer through insurance claims. 

Having Cancer can stop you from working. These difficulties require a long recovery and medical appointments, resulting in time off work and being too unwell to do your job. It can also impact your quality of life, affecting your mental health. This load can prevent you from working consistently and finding employment.

How can I get financial help while dealing with Cancer symptoms?

Cancer financial help can make a huge difference when you’ve been forced to stop working. The fatigue, joint pain, and fevers can make it tough to hold down a regular job. When you can’t work, things get tricky fast. 

Disability Support Pensions and TPD insurance claims from your super policy are two major sources of financial help. 

Can I get financial help from a Centrelink DSP / Disability Pension for cancer?

Disability Support Pensions from Centrelink help Australians who can’t work due to illness or injury. Unfortunately, about 70% of all claims are rejected and it can be tough to figure out what your application was missing. Many have heard horror stories about people with cancer who have their claims rejected. It can be tricky to gather enough evidence to show that you meet the disability requirements. This is why Super Claims Assist is here to help you through the process.

The government guidelines are heavy on legal jargon and it can be tough to figure out what to include to make an application successful without experience. 

Can I get financial help from a TPD insurance claim for cancer?

Australians with cancer can also qualify to claim Total and Permanent Disability insurance through their current or past super policies. The type of evidence needed to claim super insurance for cancer is similar to applying for the NDIS. Instead of sending it to the government, it is sent to your super insurance company. Super claims are tough to win on your own and most who try to claim are declined.

If you are unsure if you qualify for either or both, it’s worth having a free phone chat with a claim specialist.

Claiming insurance is an easy process with Super Claims Assist. In just four steps, we can start your claim. The best part is, we can help you wherever you are in Australia! Our team is on standby to schedule a call with you as soon as possible, so we can help you with your claims process.

Can I claim TPD insurance if I get NDIS or Centrelink help?

Yes! If you’re currently getting help through a disability support pension (DSP), you can also get help through a TPD claim. Because the TPD insurance was part of the super policy you earned while working, it doesn’t affect your DSP eligibility at all. Claiming the lump sum TPD payout can help give you a financial cushion which can help you navigate your symptoms.

Has your NDIS Disability Support Pension application been rejected?

Sometimes people with cancer get their claims rejected by Centrelink or the NDIS. If this has happened to you, make sure you talk with us today about your options through TPD insurance from your Super Fund. TPD is Total and Permanent Disability insurance which can make a huge difference to your financial freedom. If you currently receive NDIS support, you might also be eligible for a lump sum payment from your TPD insurance.

I tried to claim my insurance myself for 11 months but it was so overwhelming I gave up. Once I saw the ad on Facebook I thought I’d give it a try and they made it super easy.

I saw the ad while in hospital for the 6th time in 2 years. I reached out and started my claim from my hospital bed with them. 9 month later I have the money I needed to support my recover and adjust my house.
