Who can access super on compassionate grounds for medical treatment?

The ATO considers medical treatment to be the application of medicines, surgery or psychotherapy to a patient to restore or preserve health, or to cure an illness, disease or other medical condition. The medical treatment must be carried out by a registered medical practitioner.

There are two conditions that must be met to be eligible for accessing your super to pay for medical expenses. These include:

  • Condition 1: You must require medical treatment:

          ◦ To treat a life-threatening illness or injury
          ◦ To alleviate acute or chronic pain
          ◦ To alleviate acute or chronic mental illness

  • Condition 2: The medical treatment you need must not be readily available through the public health system.

In order to meet the requirements, your registered medical practitioner must provide detailed information relating to your acute or chronic pain.

What companies can help with accessing your super?

There are a few companies that can help you determine your eligibility and apply for the early release of your super to fund your medical treatment. They will generally charge you a fee to guide you through the process and help you complete your paperwork.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is.

That it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
