What you need to know about 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. Income protection insurance is usually covered in some form through your superannuation fund.
In many cases, you won’t 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.
