How can I get financial help while dealing with Crush injury symptoms?

Crush injury financial help can make a huge difference when you’ve been forced to stop working. The issues with motor skills, muscle weakness, and loss of feeling 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 the two main types of financial help. 

Can I get financial help from a Centrelink DSP / Disability Pension for my crush injury?

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 crush injuries 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 my Crush injury?

Australians with crush injuries 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 crush injuries 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.

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 (DSP) application been rejected?

Sometimes people with crush injuries get their DSP 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.

At work my sleeve caught in a roller and dragged 2 fingers between the pins before we could shut off the machine. It turned into chronic regional pain and I havn’t been able to use my right hand since. I was pulling $10K out of my super every year until SCA told me about my super insurance and I got the lot in one go.

Bryan from Western Australia

Since my foot was run over by an idiot forklift driver at work I’ve lived in constant pain. I couldn’t go back to warehousing and thought I was gunna end up homeless while fighting my super to get the insurance. SCA stepped in and within a few months I got my payout, highly recommend their team.

David from Victoria

I was working on a construction site when a steel beam fell on my arm and pinned me to the ground. By the time I was taken to the hospital the only option was amputation. My life changed forever but at least with this payout I’ve paid of my house and can get treatments. SCA made it super easy and kept me in the loop the whole time!
