I am making a workers compensation claim. Can I also make a TPD claim?

Yes. If you have commenced a workers’ compensation claim, or a CTP claim for injuries relating to a road accident, you can usually also seek TPD benefits. However, while the time limits around making CTP and workers’ compensation claims are strict, you are probably able to make a TPD claim today even if you stopped working some time ago.

Get in touch with Littles.

We are TPD experts, and can provide expert legal advice on how to manage your claims.
