I've been living in Australia for 14 years and Im a NZ citizen. Im not entitled to centrelink payments. I am suffering severe financial hardship and need to access my super otherwise I will be homeless as I am unable to work at the moment. I can't access my super because I need to be receiving a centrelink payment for the past 26 weeks. What can I do?

Hi @JB1982

 

Sorry to hear that you are going through such a stressful time.

 

There are lots of rules around accessing super, have a look at the information on accessing your super early to check if any would work for you.
