Superannuation

Superannuation is not just for the retired. Insurance through superannuation is really important for people with CF.

This is because:

  • You can get early access to your super on limited grounds (e.g. Permanent Incapacity & Terminal Illness;
  • Most Super Funds include insurance lump sums for total and permanent disability (TPD) or monthly income protection payments;
  • It’s one of the few ways to get life and disability insurance without any health questions.

Getting the right information as early as possible can make a big difference.

Check out this video of Rhys Chamberlain from Maurice Blackburn Lawyers who gives an overview of the importance of superannuation for people with cystic fibrosis.
