I am on a full-time Carers pension and was wondering if I'm entitled early access of my super? And how do I go about getting it?

Hi @MattHunter

 

Please check Early access to your Super for Individual eligibility. If you meet the listed requirements you can apply.

 

It also advises - Individuals financially affected by COVID-19 can access some of their superannuation early. Individuals will not need to pay tax on amounts released and will not need to include it in their tax return. 

 

The application is available through ATO online services in myGov. 

 

Hope this helps,

 

Regards,

JodieR.
