While superannuation insurances act as a safety net during unforeseen circumstances, many Aussies are unaware that certain medical conditions, like Graves’ disease, can qualify them to claim for Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance claims within their superannuation payments. This blog post explains how Graves’ disease can qualify as a disability for TPD superannuation claims, empowering you to unlock the financial support you deserve and are entitled to.
Understanding Graves’ Disease
Graves’ is an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid gland, leading to excessive production of thyroid hormones. This overproduction can cause a range of symptoms, including anxiety which affects day to day life, weight loss, rapid heartbeat, and muscle weakness. The physical and emotional impact of Graves’ disease can be profound, affecting a person’s ability to work and carry out daily activities. This is the key reason people with Graves Disease can be eligible for TPD.
Graves’ disease can have a significant impact on a person’s physical and mental well-being, often leading to a long-term or permanent disability. The superannuation system recognises this.
To qualify for TPD benefits, a person with Graves’ disease must meet specific criteria outlined by their superannuation fund. Generally, the criteria include evidence that the disease has rendered the individual who is claiming unable to work in their usual occupation or any other occupation they are reasonably qualified for.
The Significance of TPD Insurance in Superannuation Funds
TPD insurance is a critical component of many superannuation funds, providing financial support in case of total and permanent disability. If you are unable to work due to a qualifying disability, TPD insurance pays out a lump sum benefit, offering financial relief during difficult times. However, many individuals with Graves’ disease are unaware that they may be eligible to claim TPD benefits.
