If you're expecting a refund from a tax return or activity statement, you can request priority processing.
There are limited circumstances where you can access your super early. This includes paying certain expenses on compassionate grounds, due to a terminal illness, incapacity or severe financial hardship.
These limited circumstances have specific eligibility criteria, require the provision of documents to support eligibility and have different application processes. For more information, see Early access to your super.
If you require early access to super due to severe financial hardship, apply directly through your super fund. For more information, see:
