Hi there! I have held a working holiday visa and have lived in Australia för 2 years and I am now back in Europe (I am not an Australian citizen). Can I only collect my Superannuation all at once? It is currently december and I can collect my super, however, since I worked the last few months in Australia, I will need to take out the super from 2019 as well.

So my question is if I can take out the first part of my super now, and secon in a year or should I just wait one year and take it all out at once? Do I have a deadline to collect my super from overseas?

Help is much appreciated. Thanks!

No deadline, leave it in as long as you want.

 

Once your visa was cancelled you can collect it.

 

If you believe that you are still owed super then wait until it is paid and then collect it all at once.
