Frequently Asked Questions

Discover answers to frequently asked questions about Early Super Release at Sweet Smile Dental Doncaster.

To determine if you’re eligible for Early Super Release on compassionate grounds for dental treatments at Sweet Smile Dental Doncaster, you must meet the following conditions set by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO):

  • Citizenship/Residency: You must be, or have been, a citizen or permanent resident of Australia. Temporary residents or those who were temporary residents and are not current Australian citizens or permanent residents are not eligible.
  • Specific Compassionate Ground: You must meet the eligibility requirements of the specific compassionate ground you’re applying for. In this context, it would be for dental treatments that are unpaid expenses.
  • Unpaid Expenses: The ATO can only approve a release on compassionate grounds for unpaid expenses. If you’ve already paid for the dental treatment, you won’t meet the eligibility requirements.
  • Financial Hardship: You must demonstrate that you can’t afford to pay part or all of the dental treatment expense without accessing your super. This means you can’t pay the expense through other means like loans, savings, credit cards, selling assets, or other funding sources.
  • Supporting Evidence: You need to provide all required supporting evidence and unpaid invoices or quotes for the dental treatment. This includes any documentary evidence required to show you’re in a dependent relationship with someone if you’re applying to pay an expense for them.

Before applying for compassionate release of your super, it’s recommended to contact your super fund to confirm they will release your super early on compassionate grounds and to understand any implications for insurance attached to your accounts.

Please note that accessing your super early can have implications on your future retirement income and other financial aspects. It’s always a good idea to seek financial advice before making such decisions.

If you’re considering dental treatments at Sweet Smile Dental Doncaster and believe you might be eligible for Early Super Release, it’s essential to gather all necessary documentation and consult with both your dental provider and financial advisor.

The ATO provides comprehensive information and guidance on early super release eligibility, including the necessary forms and documentation required for application. You can find more details on the ATO website.

The portion of your superannuation accessible for dental treatments via Early Super Release varies based on your unique circumstances and the specific treatment required. You can withdraw only the amount needed to cover your treatment expenses, subject to predefined limits.

Within the Early Super Release program, you are generally limited to accessing a maximum of $10,000 from your superannuation during a single financial year. It’s crucial to recognise that tapping into your superannuation early can impact your long-term retirement savings, necessitating careful consideration.

Additionally, be mindful of potential tax implications associated with Early Super Release, as the withdrawn amount may be subject to taxation.

There are tax considerations associated with accessing your superannuation before the standard retirement age. If you’re under 60 years old and you opt for early super release due to compassionate grounds, the released amount may be subject to taxation, generally falling within a range of 17% to 22%. It’s crucial to understand that the lump-sum payment you receive will consist of both taxable and non-taxable components.

However, if you’re over 60 years of age, the early super funds you receive are usually tax-free. Furthermore, it’s essential to be aware that any early super payment you receive is likely to be included in your taxable income for the year of receipt. This inclusion in your taxable income can potentially affect your eligibility for various government welfare payments.

Please bear in mind that tax regulations can change, and it’s advisable to seek guidance from a qualified tax professional or financial advisor for the most current and tailored information based on your specific financial situation.

The Early Super Release application process usually spans several weeks to 28 days. Its duration depends on factors like the complexity of your application and your superannuation fund’s responsiveness.

To start, submit your application with all necessary documents to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). You have the option to apply online or request a paper application form by calling the ATO. After receiving it, the ATO conducts an assessment. If approved, the ATO notifies your superannuation fund, which then transfers the funds to your nominated account.

Please be patient, as the timeline can vary. You can follow up with your superannuation fund or the ATO for updates or concerns.
