Be aware of scams involving Coronavirus – refer to article ‘Be aware of scams involving Coronavirus!’

The Government announced that from 20 April 2020, eligible individuals will be able to apply to access up to:

  • $10,000 of their super before 1 July 2020
  • a further $10,000 from 1 July 2020 until 24 September 2020


These payments are tax-free and will not affect any Centrelink or Veterans’ Affairs payments you receive.

Applications for early access to superannuation will be accepted through myGov from 20 April.

You can register your interest now by logging in to your myGov account following the intention to access coronavirus support instructions.

If you don’t have a myGov account, then you will need to set one up by selecting ‘create an account’.

MyGov will notify you by email or SMS when applications open.


Should you be in a position that you need to access your super, we encourage you to speak to your Pinnacle Advisor first.
