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:
