    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'm in Brisbane and I did the application and paperwork myself. Didn't use Supercare as I didn't want to pay the fee they charge.
    It wasn't the easiest process but it wasn't too bad. I had my Doctor at Eve Health and my GP both fill out their sections on the application form. The reception staff at Eve Health said they help patients with the process often so they knew what paperwork was required. Got a quote on letterhead etc. After my nurse appointment at QFG they organized the personalized quote. Submitted everything to DHS. Took about a month but once the release is approved by DHS you send the official letter to your Super company and they will release the funds within a few days.
    Oh and I didn't do the psych report. My GP and Specialist both reported on my endometriosis specifically.

    Can you please give me the name of the psychiatrist you skyped in WA. The psychiatrist my GP referred me to refused to fill out the form as required, because I did not already have a mental illness.
