this time last year i was getting ready to hand in my tpd application to sunsuper. i have extreme mental health issues. i put a lot of work into it. it was worth it. with my age and gender (29 female)... i got approved for $228000 within 3 months. i always thought tax would be taken out before i received it... but i received the full amount within the week. now tax time coming up... i am on centrelink's dsp which i think is the only payment that doesn't attract tax... am i going to have to pay tax on the money i received last year. i know it has something to do with how many working days u would have left until u are of a retirement age etc. just so other people know... it didn't affect my dsp. i think it's something like $300 000 + to affect your pay for non home owners. i can answer q's about the tpd process if others need me to... i'd also appreciate some input about the tax. cheers... thanks.
