I am a male, 65yo & need to access funds from my Superannuation Fund, to pay for some medical expenses.
A: Anyone aged 65yo or over can access super benefits without retiring or satisfying any other special condition of release. Attaining 65yo is a condition of release.
For a fund member to access their Superannuation benefits on the basis of turning 65yo, a super fund would simply need evidence that you have reached age 65 or over & complete some forms. Tax implications may apply. You should contact your super fund for the appropriate forms and to check the process involved for accessing your super money.
