When can I access my super?
It’s all about your age. If you were born before 1 July 1960 you can get access to your super when you turn 55. If you were born later the age varies between 55 and 60. People aged 65 or over can access super and work as well.
Depending on your status, there may be tax payable. And the term, preservation age, just means the age at which you can access your super in Australia.
What can I do now that I can access my super?
Whichever option suits you best, don’t forget your partner! You can choose for one of you to withdraw from your super, or both.
