Total & Permanent Disability (TPD) Insurance
Protection when you are not able to work again
Being unable to ever work again due to total and permanent disability would have serious emotional and financial impact on you and your family. Having adequate cover in place for such an event can help secure your financial future and give you peace of mind.
How can TPD help?
TPD insurance pays a lump sum benefit to you in the event of total and permanent disability as a result of sickness or injury. You choose the level of cover at time of sickness or injury. You choose the level of cover at time of application that best meets your circumstances and budget.
This payment could provide you with financial security by ensuring there is enough money to;
– cover any unexpected medical treatment for your condition
– Pay off debts
– Provide a lump sum which could be invested to provide you with ongoing income stream and top up any income protection benefit..
What’s the difference between total and permanent disability?
Permanent total disability means that you are completely disabled as a result of your injury or work-related illness and can no longer work in the capacity for which you were trained… Permanent disability means that the worker is still able to function in his or her chosen work, but not at full capacity.
You have recently started work as a General Practitioner in a local doctor’s surgery after many years of study. You have purchased a home and have a $400,000 mortgage.
Then….. You are in a serious car accident and suffer permanent injuries to your back which will prevent you from every working again.
How would you meet your mortgage repayments and daily living expenses. Do you have access to capital to modify your home if needed and over the expenses of rehabilitation?
