SECTION 292-95   Contributions arising from structured settlements or orders for personal injuries  

292-95(1)  
A contribution is covered under this section if:


(a) the contribution arises from:


(i) the settlement of a claim that satisfies the conditions in subsection (3); or

(ii) the settlement of a claim in relation to a personal injury suffered by you under a law of the Commonwealth or of a State or Territory relating to workers compensation; or

(iii) the order of a court that satisfies the conditions in subsection (4); and


(b) the contribution is made within 90 days after the later of the following:


(i) the day of receipt of the payment from which the contribution is made; or

(ii) in relation to subparagraph (a)(i) or (iii) - the day mentioned in subsection (2); and


(c) 2 legally qualified medical practitioners have certified that, because of the personal injury, it is unlikely that you can ever be *gainfully employed in a capacity for which you are reasonably qualified because of education, experience or training; and


(d) no later than the time the contribution is made to a *superannuation plan, you or your *legal personal representative notify the *superannuation provider in relation to the plan, in the *approved form, that this section is to apply to the contribution.

292-95(2)  
For the purposes of subparagraph (1)(b)(ii), the day is:


(a) for a settlement mentioned in subparagraph (a)(i):


(i) the day on which the agreement mentioned in paragraph (3)(c) was entered into; or

(ii) if that agreement depends, for its effectiveness, on being approved (however described) by an order of a court, or on being embodied in a consent order made by a court - the day on which that order was made; or


(b) for an order mentioned in subparagraph (1)(a)(iii) - the day on which the order was made.

292-95(3)  
For the purposes of subparagraph (1)(a)(i), the conditions are as follows:


(a) the claim:


(i) is for compensation or damages for, or in respect of, personal injury suffered by you; and

(ii) is made by you or your *legal personal representative;


(b) the claim is based on the commission of a wrong, or on a right created by statute;


(c) the settlement takes the form of a written agreement between the parties to the claim (whether or not that agreement is approved by an order of a court, or is embodied in a consent order made by a court).

292-95(4)  
For the purposes of subparagraph (1)(a)(iii), the conditions are as follows:


(a) the order is made in respect of a claim that:


(i) is for compensation or damages for, or in respect of, personal injury suffered by you; and

(ii) is made by you or your *legal personal representative;


(b) the claim is based on the commission of a wrong, or on a right created by statute;


(c) the order is not an order approving or endorsing an agreement as mentioned in paragraph (3)(c).

292-95(5)  
If a claim is both:


(a) for compensation or damages for personal injury suffered by you; and


(b) for some other remedy (for example, compensation or damages for loss of, or damage to, property);

subsections (3) and (4) apply to the claim, but only to the extent that it relates to the compensation or damages referred to in paragraph (a), and only to amounts that, in the settlement agreement, or in the order, are identified as being solely in payment of that compensation or those damages.
