If an eligible young person who was wholly or partly dependent on a deceased member immediately before death applies for compensation (or the compensation is claimed on their behalf, for example by the deceased's partner), s/he is entitled to a tax-free lump sum compensation payment where:

  • liability for the deceased member's death has been accepted; or
  • the deceased member met the criteria for a SRDP safety net payment during some period of his or her life; or
  • the deceased member's permanent impairment is assessed as being 80 points or more immediately before his or her death.

The amount of the lump sum payable is the rate current as at date of death of the member.

See CLIK for the current amount payable
