Total and Permanent Disablement Insurance
What if you could never go to work again?
If a serious accident or illness left you unable to work, where would the money come from to pay the bills?
Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) cover protects you and your family (and if relevant, business colleagues) by paying a one-off lump sum if you become totally and permanently disabled from a sickness or injury.
There are two definitions, and associated costs, of Disablement:
- “any” occupation means the inability to perform any occupation to which you are suited by education, training or experience
- “own” occupation means never able to return to occupations similar to your current occupation.
TPD cover using “any” definition is about 50% cheaper than “own” occupation. However, you are less likely to have a successful TPD claim with “any” occupation than “own” because “any” occupation is very broad. So its important to decide whether you are willing to pay more for “own” occupation TPD and have a higher chance of making a successful claim.
At Archimedes Financial Planning, we work closely with you to find your trade-off between investment for the future, assuming no-one is TPD, versus investing in insurance now to protect dependants, should you become TPD.
