In this section
You can only apply to get your superannuation released early for a few reasons.
If you release your superannuation early, it may impact the amount of other payments you get.
Grounds for early release
You normally can’t use your super until you reach preservation age. In rare cases your super fund may let you have some of the money early.
About compassionate grounds
We can approve early release of some super if you can meet one of the specific compassionate grounds for needing it.
Early release of super to help a dependant
You can apply for early release of super to help your partner, child or other dependant. It must be for compassionate grounds.
