485 visa and stuck overseas

I am in 485 post study visa and am stuck overseas due to border closure. I have my visa till June 2022 but don't really think that I can enter Australia anytime soon due to ongoing border restrictions. Am I eligible to access my super at this situation to meet the current financial needs?

Hi @Sonish12

 

Welcome to ATO community!

 

There is super information for temporary residents departing Australia. Generally, you can claim a departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP) if the following apply:

  • your visa has ceased to be in effect (for example, it has expired or been cancelled)
  • you have left Australia and you do not hold any other active Australian visa

Head to our website for more information about Departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP).

 

You can also check out other options to access super early on our website.

 

Hope this helps,
