What is it?

TPD is paid out if the insured person becomes totally and permanently disabled and are unable to work.

Why should you get it?

Well the responsibilities, debts and bills won't stop even if you or a key person can’t work – and the future of your business might be at stake.

What’s the deal?

You pay an amount of money (called a ‘premium’) for a policy. The policy is a contract so you know exactly what we’ll pay out for. If you keep paying for your insurance with us, and the policy terms and conditions have been met, we’ll pay out for everything we agreed.

Anything else?

You’re insured even after retirement age so that if you are still working in your business – your policy keeps working for you. It’s important to note though that if you’re not working, or you’re over the age of 70, the definition of what totally permanently disabled means does change. Take a look at the info sheet for more details.

With business growth comes increased risk. You can increase the value of a person’s cover when certain financial changes happen in the business before the age of 55 without needing to give us medical evidence (check out the TPD info sheet for details as there are a few conditions).
