Income Protection Insurance Claims
If you are unable to work due to a medical condition, income protection insurance can cover your income. This benefit can be up to 75% of your income for a minimum of two years, until the age of 65, or potentially life.
What you need to know
We act on a no-win, no-fee basis for these types of cases, which means you will not be charged until the end of the case, dependent on the result.
Income protection insurance is usually covered in some form through your superannuation fund.
In many cases, you will not be aware of the terms and conditions on income protection insurance, which vary between insurers, as a copy of the policy is not always provided.
Claiming income protection insurance can sometimes be difficult, and many insurers routinely decline claims or stop paying after a short period of time.
Our lawyers can help you to challenge this decision and will help you to work through the fine print in your policies so that you can gain access to your full entitlements.
How we can help
We can assist with:
- providing advice about what you might be entitled to
- negotiating a claim on your behalf
- issuing court proceedings if the matter cannot be satisfactorily resolved.
We're here to help you.
