Time limit to lodge a TPD claim

Time limit for lodging TPD claim

Be aware of the time limits that may apply when lodging a disability claim.

In June 2012 all members were informed that from 1 July 2012 an amendment to the LGIAsuper Trust deed would mean members have 6 years from the date they cease with their employer to lodge a Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) claim with LGIAsuper in order for the claim to be considered by the LGIAsuper Trustee.
