A guide to Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Insurance

TPD insurance provides financial security if you become permanently unable to work

Over 2 million Australians are of working age with a disability. Of these 59% are permanently unable to work. Hence the need for TPD insurance.

A permanent disability can place enormous strain on a family’s financial position. Not only can you be left without an income, but there are often additional and perhaps unexpected costs that come with being disabled, some of which can remain for a number of years.

Easdowns has written this short guide for you about TPD insurance if you find yourself planning for the future.

While this guide may offer an excellent overview of what TPD insurance is, it is only meant to be an introduction and should not be substituted for an actual consultation. To ensure you and your family’s financial future are protected, speak to us about the cover options available.
