What Is Total Permanent Disability Insurance?

Total and Permanent Disability Insurance, also known as TPD insurance, provides a lump sum payout if you suffer from a total and permanent disability due to an illness or injury. TPD is defined as a disability that completely prevents the insured person from performing their normal occupation or any other occupation, lasting for at least twelve months without improvement.

In the unfortunate event that you become unable to work, TPD insurance offers essential financial security for you and your family. The policy proceeds can be used according to your needs, whether it’s replacing lost income, paying off mortgages, covering rehabilitation expenses, or making modifications to accommodate the disability.

Aspect’s TPD Insurance provides comprehensive coverage and excellent value, assessing your disability against your ability to perform daily activities, regardless of your employment status at the time of the disability.

Income Protection Insurance

Income protection insurance is a product that replaces your income if you are temporarily unable to work due to illness or injury. Most policies will provide you with a fortnightly or monthly benefit payment of up to 75% (some up to 85%) of the income amount you’ve insured. This can also be customised to include an additional benefits bundle, by paying an additional premium, for benefits such as overseas assistance, child’s trauma and housekeeper benefits.

Accidental Death Insurance

Accidental Death Insurance (death by injury) is an easy and low-cost alternative to Life Insurance (death by any cause) or a good way to supplement an existing life benefit. Accidental death cover will pay your estate a benefit amount upon your death as a result of an accident/injury. Generally, the sum insured would be $100,000 to $1,000,000, depending on your circumstances.

Trauma Insurance

Trauma insurance provides you with a lump sum payment, payable on diagnosis if you suffer a serious medical condition like a heart attack, stroke or cancer. A trauma benefit is typically used to pay off immediate medical bills, rehab expenses, replace income and assist with your ongoing costs, protecting you against future debts and time away from work. The sum insured could range from $50,000 to $500,000, depending on whether it’s a standalone cover or purchased in conjunction with other products.
