Early release of superannuation

Accessing your super
You can access your super when you turn 65 or when you reach ‘preservation age’ and retire. There are very limited circumstances where you can access your super savings early. If you’re a temporary resident working in Australia, you can apply for your super when you leave.
Stopping schemes to illegally access super
We are working to protect the retirement savings of Australians from schemes to illegally access super.
