Temporary Early Access to Superannuation - Buyer Beware
The Government has legislated to provide for some people to access super early. Accessing your super in times of financial hardship should be a last resort. This is a step which should only be taken by workers if all other ways of getting income support are exhausted. If you are unclear of what measures you could take, you can talk to your union or visit the Services Australia website to find what payments you qualify to access. You may also have an insurance policy in your fund to protect against loss of income. Contact your fund to help you determine if you have income protection insurance you can access.
