An interesting article about superannuation increasingly being released early on compassionate grounds to pay medical costs: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-01-09/superannuation-being-used-to-pay-for-medical-bills/9313720?section=health
In addition to access due to ‘severe financial hardship’, these grounds encompass Medical, Mortgage, Disability, Palliative care, or Funeral expenses, including often for dependants (other conditions apply). If you would like to discuss release of superannuation, give Springdale Legal a call today.
