Frequently Asked Questions

What is TPD Insurance?

TPD or Total and Permanent Disablement Insurance is a popular and important type of cover that is often purchased as an optional extra with Life Insurance. This type of cover is designed to help with financial security by paying a lump sum if you become severely disabled as a result of severe illness or injury and are unable to return to work again.

How much TPD Insurance do I need?

Working out how much TPD cover you need in the event of a catastrophic injury or illness can be challenging, however, this need not be difficult. The amount of cover will depend on your individual circumstances and considerations; will include your overall debts and replacement of lost (future) income, your existing and potential needs, as well as the cost of treatment and rehabilitation. TPD Insurance cover is available from NobleOak when accompanied with life cover issued by us. At NobleOak, you can apply for an amount of TPD Insurance Cover up to your Life Cover sum insured, to a maximum of $5 million. Any approved claim for TPD will reduce your Life Insurance cover by the amount of the TPD payment.

Can I buy Life and TPD insurance together?

For complete peace of mind, TPD Cover is available to purchase alongside Life Insurance with NobleOak. Obtaining TPD means you are taking extra measures to protect yourself and your loved ones from potential financial hardship in case you were to become permanently disabled. You can find out more about combining policies and applying for a quote online. We don’t make TPD insurance available as a ‘stand alone’ policy.

How can I use my TPD Insurance payout?

Providing you meet certain requirements, you can expect to receive a Total and Permanent Insurance Disability payout from NobleOak as a lump sum. You are free to use this payout in any way you choose, like modifying your home, buying specialised equipment, replacing lost income or settling mortgage and credit card debt. At NobleOak, if your payment exceeds $200,000, then an additional $2,000 is available to use for independent financial advice to assist you with managing your money.
