An important part of superannuation is to ensure that all members of the community have an adequate level of income in retirement. Given this, the law imposes strict conditions on the early release of superannuation to ensure superannuation savings are preserved to provide income in retirement.
You may be eligible to apply for access to a limited portion of your superannuation early strictly under the following circumstances:
Severe financial hardship;
Terminal medical condition;
Permanent incapacity; or
If your super balance is less than $200
You can apply for early release of your superannuation online by accessing your myGov account.
Migration and our visa programs are important to Australia’s prosperity and economic growth. Australia has a rules driven migration system with processes of the highest integrity. As such, Senator Hume is unable to intervene or advocate on visa matters. Team Hume may be available to assist in contacting the Department of Home Affairs, however MyImmi is almost always the best place for further information or to provide additional evidence to support a visa application. For more information please visit: www.immi.homeaffairs.gov.au
Senator Hume is unable to award grant funding, and often grants are subject to stringent criteria. However, when applications from the community are put forward, Senator Hume may be able to offer her support as a Victorian Senator and has been proud to support many local and significant projects across Victoria.
