Cancer Treatment

Find out more on how to access your Superannuation for treatment

Funding Oncology Treatment

Did you know that 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85? Whether you or someone you know are affected by Oncology or Urology issues, don't let cost affect receiving treatment.

Did you know you can apply to have your superannuation released early in order to fund cancer treatment/surgery?

We want to make sure all Australians have the opportunity to access medical treatment, regardless of their prognosis. That’s why we are here to facilitate your application to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) so that, upon your receipt of the ATO's approval, you may directly approach your superannuation fund trustee for the early release of your superannuation in order to fund a variety of cancer surgeries and procedures, such as:

  • General Surgery
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation Therapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Targeted Therapy
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Stem Cell Transplant
  • Precision Medicine

Please note that your superannuation fund trustee may refuse to release the superannuation funds in accordance with their own policies, despite your receipt of the ATO's approval.

It is possible to use superannuation funds to pay for some medical procedures for family members - so long as the family member is eligible pursuant to the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993. For further information about the eligibility of your family member(s) as well as the types of medical services available to eligible family member(s), please contact us.

SuperCare helps you with the process of securing funds for the aftercare cost, pre-rehab, rehab costs and medication. We have also partnered with some of Australia’s leading surgeons and medical professionals, allowing you to choose your specialist and the hospital. It’s our mission to ensure you have all the support and care you could possibly need. We take care of the small things, so you can focus on getting healthier sooner.

HOW SUPERCARE WORKS

SuperCare’s unique and innovative service provides assistance to individuals and their families in times of need. We do this by facilitating your application for early release of superannuation with the Australian Tax Office so that you can then apply to your superannuation fund for this early release.

Please note your fund trustee has a discretion to decide whether or not it will release your superannuation according to its own policies. Should the trustee agree to release your superannuation, you are able to use those funds to pay for medical treatment or funeral expenses that you would otherwise be unable to pay for.

It is possible to use superannuation funds to pay for some medical procedures for family members - so long as the family member is eligible pursuant to the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993. For further information about the eligibility of your family member(s) as well as the types of medical services available to eligible family member(s), please contact us. SuperCare’s role is to facilitate the application process to the Australian Tax Office (ATO), which is vital to your application to your fund for the early release of your superannuation, by providing the following services:

We educate you so that you understand the complexities of the legislation surrounding early release of superannuation and how the Early Release Superannuation (ERS) Program works.
Our trained professional consultants provide support and guidance with your service provider and in completing the application and dealing with the ATO, who assess applications for the ERS program.
Your application is assessed by the ATO. If the ATO approves your application, you will receive an approval letter that needs to be supplied to your fund, who will then assess your request for the withdrawal of superannuation.
