Life, Income & Disability

Total and Permanent Disablement Insurance

Why do you need Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) cover?

Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) Insurance cover pays a lump sum if you suffer a sickness or injury that leaves you permanently unable to work.

Think about the things that are vital to you performing your occupation. For instance, how might the development of a tremor in your dominant hand or losing your sight in one eye affect your ability to continue working? What about cutting a tendon in your thumb in a DIY accident or a head injury permanently impairing your memory and ability to concentrate at work?

For many professional occupations, experiencing such a sickness or injury may have a significant impact on your ability to carry out your own or any occupation. If you were unable to ever work again as the result of such an event, how would you and your family cope financially?
