Departing Australia superannuation payment

Temporary residents who accumulate super while working in Australia may claim super from their fund.

Last updated 11 July 2017

Temporary residents who accumulated super while working in Australia on eligible temporary resident visas can claim their super from their fund if:

  • they've departed Australia
  • their visa has ceased to be in effect
  • they aren't an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident.

This payment is called a departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP).

From 1 July 2017, a new tax rate of 65% applies to DASP for working holiday makers if the payment includes superannuation contributions made while a person held either:

  • subclass 417 (Working Holiday) visa
  • subclass 462 (Work and Holiday) visa
  • an associated bridging visa.
