    Awesome, Thank-you all so much for your replies, greatly appreciated. Found out I'm eligible for a payment that qualifies so will just have to wait 26wks, thought I'd give it a crack at least, worst case they'll just say no. Thanks again

    I was actually told by centrelink that with the letter from them after 26 weeks the super fund can't really say no.
    Whether that's true or not I'm not sure. I got it. No questions asked. Remember as pp said you'll be taxed so don't expect $10000

    This is incorrect - or at least was last year when I had funds released to me. All the Centrelink letter is is confirmation that you have been in receipt of benefits, I also had to provide details of my circumstances as well as proof of everything I was intending to use the money for. It is up to the individual funds to assess whether you meet the criteria or not from the information provided.

    Definitely wrong.
    We don't even ask our members for the letter when assessing a claim. We require the CRN which we check against centrelinks systems. I had a lady supply the q230 letter then Centrelink said she was ineligible so therefore we legally aren't allowed to process and we always check the crn so we meet govt requirements. Some super funds don't require evidence of financial hardship (a very small amount) but still need to come back as eligible when checking crn electronically

    Yes you have to provide further information about overdue bills etc.
    But if you have the letter. .and talk to your fund they are usually quite helpful for those who desperately need it. You're only eligible for a certain amount of days from issue of the letter.

    I didnt have to supply any bills . Just google "financial hardship early release of super 'super name' form" and it the application you need to fill out for your fund should come up with all the details you need MLC all you have to supply was a photo copy of your ID signed by a JP the form isn't needed if you supply you crn on the form its the same thing they can look up your details with it anyway

    My fund wanted the form the q230. As did my hubby's fund. But yeah. .why can't they just look it up with your crn??!! Makes sense i guess. I had to get jp certified forms.

    I don't know about others but our funds were certainly very helpful. And did everything they could to help us get some money. Perhaps the extra paperwork I supplied helped?
    Not sure but apart from having to do the paperwork I found it quite an easy process and was a lifesaver.
