Early release of superannuation benefits information for medical practitioners

Your patients wishing to access their super early on these grounds will have to apply to the ATO.

From 1 July 2018 people now need to go to the Australian Taxation Office to apply for early release of super on compassionate grounds.

If a patient has a terminal illness they can apply directly to their superannuation fund for a tax free early release of superannuation.
