I'm new

Can you access your super early when you have enough savings (because you're saving to buy a house) but lost your job due to COVID-19 and you're partner is working 50% less hours as well?

HI @Essie 

 

I would check the information on the below link:

Being unemployed makes you eligible for the early release of super.

 

Your partner would also be eligible if their working hours has been reduced by 20% or more.
