Accessing your Super
Reaching preservation age is when a Member of the Fund can legally access the benefits in the SMSF. You can access your Superannuation balance when:
- You reach preservation age and retire permanently from the workforce
- You turned 65 but not retired
- You satisfy the Transition to Retirement rules while continuing to work
Preservation age varies depending on your date of birth (see table above). When you reach 65 there are no cashing restrictions. Superannuation balances are available at any time once a Member retires.
