Is Anxiety a Disability in Australia?
Yes, anxiety is recognized as a disability and Anxiety TPD Claims are one path to financial help. The symptoms of anxiety make it hard to focus and do your job consistently. Anxiety can have an impact on all aspects of your life including relationships and work.
Anxiety TPD Claims are one way to access insurance money that you earned while working. Medical and financial help are both important after being forced out of work due to anxiety symptoms. Too many people miss out on their tpd money because they have no idea they’ve earned it.
Many Australians with mental health illnesses are eligible for insurance money from their super policies but most don’t know that it exists or how to claim it.
What symptoms affect Australians with Anxiety?
Anxiety has a significant effect on an individual’s day to day. It can also affect their ability to work.

- apprehensive or powerless

Some physical symptoms include:

- a racing or pounding heart
- problems sleeping
- a churning stomach or ’butterflies in the stomach’
- ‘pins and needles’

Of course, symptoms can vary over time or vary from person to person.
What are some of the causes of Anxiety?
The exact causes of anxiety are difficult to pin down and there are often many things that contribute to developing anxiety. Some of the common situations that cause anxiety are abuse, childhood trauma, and extremely stressful situations, but there are many other reasons that an individual might develop a mental illness.
Anxiety also has many internal factors that can increase the risk of developing it. An individual’s genes, family history, and personality can increase how vulnerable a person is to anxiety after a stressful situation.
However, an important thing to recognize about the causes of mental health conditions is that they are illnesses just like any other physical conditions and they do not make the individuals “weak” or at fault. Learn more about how to help these conditions here:
