Applying for early release of super is free for your patients

7 September 2017

People may be able to access their super early in some circumstances set out in legislation.

Medical treatment is one of the compassionate grounds under which people can apply.

We’re aware of companies who charge a fee to help people apply for early release of their super.

It’s important for your patients to know they can apply to us directly for an early release of super. There’s no charge.

We process all applications in the same way and in the same timeframe. Applicants who pay fees to companies to help them apply for super cannot claim the fee back under compassionate grounds.
