Significant changes to superannuation early release provisions

Today’s announcement by the Federal Government represents significant changes to superannuation early release provisions. Early access to retirement savings should only occur under extenuating circumstances and we need to ensure it gets to those who need it most, in an efficient manner. ASFA will work constructively with government and regulators to endeavour to minimise impact on the long term retirement savings of Australians. The measures announced are very broad in terms of eligibility and we will work with our members to help understand the challenges that will present.
