Should you be able to access your super for other purposes?
It's not common or well known, but there are cases where you can get your hands on your super, without retiring.
In 2016-17, some fifteen thousand Australians applied for early release super on medical grounds, according to new figures. This is up from 4,000 in 2010-11.
Expensive IVF and weight loss surgery were among the top reasons people gave for accessing their nest egg sooner.
