Early access to your Superannuation

In some circumstances one may be able to access your superannuation lump sum. The grounds for early access to your superannuation include: to cover medical treatment bills (unpaid), to pay for transport to access medical treatment, to prevent foreclosure on your home mortgage, to pay for home modifications (if you have a disability), if one has a terminal illness with a life expectancy of less than two years, or in some cases of severe hardship.

For more information on your superannuation entitlements, contact the Super fund or a financial counsellor.
