Superannuation funds are special monetary reserves which are disbursed in the event of partial or severe disability of the employee. The fund is accumulated through the years by regular contribution from the employers and the employees’ side. The superannuation funds will only be disbursed in the event of partial or complete disability.
The funds can only be claimed when the accident victim is rendered unfit (by the accident) and is not in a position to use old skills, competencies and knowledge effectively in the new job. The person must be affected to a degree which prevents him/her from performing regular duties and responsibilities.
Compensation Lawyer can help you understand the details of the criteria you need to fulfill if you want to claim for superannuation funds.
