• Terminal medical condition law change

    From 1 July 2015, law changes have extended the life expectancy period to 24 months for members to access their super benefits due to a terminal medical condition. A terminal medical condition exists if:

    • two registered medical practitioners have certified jointly or separately that the member suffers from an illness, or has incurred an injury, that is likely to result in the member's death within 24 months of the date of certification
    • at least one of the registered medical practitioners is a specialist practicing in an area related to the illness or injury
    • the certification period has not ended for each of the certificates.
