  • Five grounds for compassionate release of super

    We've seen a significant increase in calls from individuals who were encouraged by funds to contact us because they were ineligible for compassionate release of super (CRS). But in the majority of cases the individuals concerned were ineligible because they were looking to pay for general expenses. CRS is only an option for the following unpaid expenses:

    • medical treatment and transport
    • palliative care
    • making a loan payment to prevent the loss of one's home
    • modifications to a home or vehicle, or buying disability aids for a severe disability
    • expenses associated with the death, funeral or burial of a dependant.
