Report highlights

  • Nearly half of Australian workers have three months or less in savings in the event of a disability preventing them from working, with almost a third of women having savings of just one month.
  • 57 per cent of respondents prefer a steady stream of regular income over a lump sum payment in the event of illness or injury.
  • The current approach to disability insurance in super is centred on a binary assessment of permanent disability, failing to adapt to the evolving needs of members and labour force patterns.
