A Results Driven Approach To Protecting Your Income. Our Insurance Compensation Claim Lawyers Have What You’ll Need To Get The Most Back
That’s why, when you’re faced with this scenario, it’s important that you get all the benefits you’re entitled to.
Such benefits can be available to many under:
- An income protection policy obtained by the person directly or by an employer as a group policy.
- An income protection policy obtained as part of a Superannuation Fund.
Due to the complexity of these policies, it is often difficult for unemployed workers to know exactly what cover they have and how they can get the maximum benefits they deserve from all available sources.

About Income Protection Insurance
Whether it is through a superannuation fund or a separate policy, many workers are covered by income protection insurance that is designed to provide benefits in the event they are unable to work due to an injury or illness. Sometimes this cover is provided by an employer, a union, a private policy or a super.
Because there are so many varieties of income protection insurance, there are many different requirements and procedures for claiming benefits when someone becomes unable to work because they are disabled by sickness or an injury. One thing that is common across all forms of income protection: the path to securing benefits is confusing, difficult and riddled with potential delays.

At Henry Carus + Associates, our lawyers deal with insurance policies and superannuation funds every day in our practice. We know what to look for and how to prepare a claim so that it has the best chance for approval. If a claim is unreasonably denied, we are not afraid to take the claim to litigation in order to achieve a successful outcome as quickly as possible.
Most forms of income protection will provide payments that equal 75 percent of what you earned before you got sick or injured. These payments may be made in addition to compensation you receive from WorkCover or other sources, though offsets may apply.
Because we understand what a difference income protection payments can make for your household finances, the legal team at Henry Carus + Associates works hard to maximise the amount you receive from every available source.
Roadblocks To Income Protection Benefits
Why can it be so difficult to receive what you deserve from income protection schemes? Many of the obstacles arise from the fact that insurance companies don’t want to pay out unless they have to. Fortunately, the insurance business is a heavily regulated industry. However, it often takes someone who understands the regulations to make them work on behalf of claimants rather than insurers.
That knowledge and experience give us an inside edge when seeking income protection benefits for our clients.
