Suffering from heart disease symptoms that impact your ability to work?

It is important to know about financial help for heart disease through insurance claims. 

The symptoms related to heart attacks can stop you from working. After suffering from one heart attack, you often have to completely change your lifestyle. This difficult transition period results in time off work and being too anxious to do your job. It can also impact your quality of life which may require help for your mental health. This load can prevent you from working consistently and finding alternate employment may be hard.

How can I get financial help after a heart attack?

Heart disease financial help can make a huge difference when you’ve been forced to stop working. The lifestyle changes, related anxiety, and symptoms make it tough to hold down a regular job. When you can’t work, things get tough fast. 

Disability Support Pensions and TPD insurance claims from your super policy are the two main types of heart disease financial help. 

Heart disease Financial help from a Centrelink DSP

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 who have their claims rejected after a heart attack. It can be tricky to gather enough evidence to show that you meet the disability requirements. This is why Super Claims Assist is so helpful.

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. 

Heart disease Financial help from a TPD insurance claim

Australians after a heart attack 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 heart disease is similar to applying for the NDIS but 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’m already getting NDIS or Centrelink help for my heart?

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 claim been rejected?

Sometimes people with heart disease 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 are currently receiving NDIS support, you might also be eligible for a lump sum payment from your TPD insurance.

TPD insurance claims can be a long and confusing process, especially when you are already dealing with your heart condition.
