My income support stops after 24 months. Now what?

You may be entitled to ongoing support through a lump sum claim.

Am I entitled to a lump sum, and when will I get it?

If you’ve been receiving personal injury benefits for more than six months, then that means your injuries have been assessed as non-minor, and you weren’t the driver at fault in your accident. So you’re entitled to claim a lump sum. But it won’t be paid to you automatically at the end of the 24-month period – you’ll need to lodge a separate claim for your lump sum.

Time limits apply for lodging your claim, and the amount you can claim depends on the extent of your injuries, measured on the “WPI” (whole person impairment) scale. For more information about this, please refer to our article on What you need to know before you lodge a lump sum claim.

What do I do next?

  • If your benefits are stopping at 24 months and you still need financial support, you’ll need to lodge a claim for a lump sum.

  • Time limits apply, so don’t delay.

  • For more information about this, please refer to our article on what you need to know before you lodge a lump sum claim.

“Lump sum claims can be substantial, but the amount you receive will depend on the supporting evidence you provide with your application, so it’s very important that nothing is missed.
