Can you work after TPD claim?
Currently, if you have already received a lump sum payment from a TPD claim, you can often return to work at a later date without repaying back the money. When a compensation matter is settled, both parties sign a deed of release that finalises the claim and resolves the matter.
How much is a TPD payout?
Based on past statistics, the average TPD claim is between $100,000 and $150,000, with around 15,000 claims paid each year. The TPD policy being owned by the fund means that any benefit is paid directly to the fund before they pass it to you.
