Funeral and Memorialistion Funding

SuperCare helped my family through a time of great need. We weren't expecting to need funds to cover our sons funeral and this was a great option. They were caring and kind and we weren't treated like dollar signs - exactly what we needed.

We’ve helped countless Australian families apply to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) for its approval for the early release of superannuation. Only with the ATO's approval can our clients then apply with their respective superannuation fund trustees for the early release of their superannuation to cover funeral expenses. Our service thus eases the anguish associated with the financial burden as much as possible for our clients.

Our innovative service simplifies the application process to the ATO so that once the applicants gain approval from the ATO, they may approach their respective superannuation fund trustees for the early release of superannuation. Please note that, despite obtaining approval from the ATO, trustees still have the discretion to refuse the early release of superannuation in accordance with their policies.

This payment option is ideal for a family that:

  • May not have immediate access to available funds
  • May not have existing Insurance or Pre-Paid arrangements in place
  • Require the fast approval of funds, often in as little as 24 hours

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.
