Early release of superannuation

You can apply for your superannuation to be released early on specified compassionate grounds or if you are experiencing severe financial hardship.

We can only approve early release of your superannuation benefits to help you with unpaid expenses. If you used a loan or credit card or borrowed money from family or friends to pay the expense, it is considered paid, therefore the eligibility requirements have not been met.
