Total and Permanent Disablement claims

How to claim:

As a Lump Sum Scheme member you’re covered in the case of your total and permanent disablement (TPD).

The Super SA Board must approve your claim before it is paid so you shouldn’t resign or accept termination on account of disablement before applying for your entitlement.

To make a claim you must:

  • be under 55
  • not be receiving, or entitled to receive workers’ compensation
  • have approval from the Super SA Board
  • provide details of your condition
  • provide a medical report completed by your doctor.

If you are totally and permanently disabled after age 55, you will receive a retirement entitlement.

Once we’ve received your claim form, it may take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to complete the claims process. The time taken to assess your claim depends on the condition/s you have and the information that is available.
Super SA will let you know of the progress of your claim along the way.
