Generally speaking, it takes 6-12 months for a TPD claim to be finalised.
Insurance companies generally assess TPD claims within six months. However, some critical illness claims can be finalised sooner. It’s only with more complicated claims that insurance companies tend to take longer than six months to make a decision.
Once the insurance company has made their decision on a TPD claim, the trustee of the superannuation fund must make their own separate assessment of the claim. This process usually takes between one and two months.
