Total & Permanent Disablement Cover
Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD) Insurance
TPD insurance provides a lump sum if the life insured suffers an illness or injury which totally and permanently incapacitates them from working. It is usually offered as an option on a term life policy, however it can also be offered as a stand-alone policy.
Your sum insured should be adequate to cover outstanding debts and provide an adequate lump sum to cover:
- Your dependants’ income needs; and
- The higher medical, rehabilitation, home/car modification and care costs associated with the insured’s permanent incapacity.
Traditionally the waiting period is six months before a claim can be assessed.
