Early release of super

Hi, I have applied for an early release from my super due to Covid19. As I still owe Centrelink some money, and my last tax refund all went towards that debt, does that mean my early super release will too get the balance of the debt taken out or will I get the whole amount I applied for? As I really need the funds. Any help would be thoroughly appreciated!

Hi @J1032 

 

Thanks for getting in touch with us - we understand it's a really tough time at the moment.

 

I've looked through the information we have on early release of Super, and there is nothing in there that says any of the money can be withheld to repay debts.

 

Hope that helps

Stay safe
