Accessing your super due to financial hardship

Usually, you can only access your superannuation once you have reached your preservation age and met a condition of release (such as retiring from the workforce or turning 65).

However, in limited circumstances, you may be eligible to access your super prior to reaching preservation age. One condition under which you may be able to request early release of your superannuation is due to financial hardship.
