Early release of super extended
For individuals affected by the adverse economic effects of COVID-19, the government has temporarily allowed eligible individuals to access their superannuation early and tax-free. The government is extending the application period for the measure from 24 September 2020 to 31 December 2020 to increase the scope for individuals who may still be financially impacted by COVID-19 to access early release in the coming months. Eligible Australian and New Zealand citizens and permanent residents were able to access up to $10,000 of their superannuation before 1 July 2020. They can access a further $10,000 until 31 December 2020.
Please contact TNR if you have any queries related to an early release from your super fund.
