Group total permanent disablement insurance provides your employee with a lump sum benefit if they become totally and permanently or partially and permanently disabled and:

How does group total permanent disablement work?
TPD policies either offer cover if your employee can no longer work in their usual job (own occupation) or may only cover your employee if they can’t work in any job at all (any occupation).
Often employers use a 1 to 5 times annual income formula to figure out how much TPD cover to offer employees. Your company then pays a regular premium depending on the cover amount selected. The cost of your premium will also depend on factors like age and the industry.
