    Lastly, would the fact that we've already got a little boy disadvantage us in our application? The reason we want another baby is because we lost our five and a half year old daughter from an asthma attack in 2012, and we'd dearly love to give our son a sibling to grow up with.
    I am in the process of accessing super for (non-donor) IVF and submitted my application to DHS today. I can't answer your first question but in relation to the other two: yes you can access your preserved amount (paid by your employer) but you may need to pay tax on this. The fact that you have a little boy shouldn't disadvantage you. You will need to have an appointment with a psychiatrist (mine was done over the phone) and they will write a report saying that IVF is required in order to alleviate an acute or chronic mental illness. If your inability to have another child is causing stress/anxiety/depression then I do not think it is relevant that you have your little boy. I am very sorry for the loss of your daughter and wish you all the best in your efforts to move forward with donor egg IVF. Oh and I used SuperCare and have had a very positive experience with them (I dealt with Maria and Lisa at SuperCare).

    Just wondering if anyone has used early release of super from Brisbane. I am not using super care as think $1000 to pay someone to do little bit of paperwork is a rort. I organising myself however need to get psychiatrist report and I would prefer get name of psychiatrist who has been through process and knows what to write. I have seen lot of people using supercare use a psychiatrist in Melbourne via skype but I would not be eligible for medicare rebate for skype session as I live in a capital city Brisbane,

    Thanks if anyone has this info.....

    I had a phone session with Dr Gallogly in Melbourne. I am in Perth and got the medicare rebate.
