Anangu ask this question a lot. Below are the answers! If you don’t have one of these reasons to get your super money out, MoneyMob Talkabout cannot help you.
You have reached “preservation age”. This means, the age at law when you are old enough to get your money out.
You are in “severe financial hardship” (you are having a really hard time with paying important bills or immediate living costs). This does not mean you need money to buy a car or just to go shopping. You must have been unemployed for 26 weeks or more. You can only get $10,000 in one year, less tax.
You have a “terminal illness” (you are really sick and going to die). Your doctor must write letters about this.
You have less than $200 in your super account.
You need to withdraw super money on “compassionate grounds”.
Remember, most times when you take your super out early, you will lose a lot of money in tax.
