Early Release of Superannuation Benefits

AIST believes that individuals should be able to access superannuation savings prior to retirement, but access should only be permitted in limited circumstances as early access can limit an individual’s ability to achieve an adequate retirement. Furthermore, superannuation should not be used to address structural or systemic problems in other areas of society and governments must examine the central issues that cause individuals to access superannuation early.
