Most of us are aware that superannuation benefits can be paid out on retirement (i.e. after attaining your preservation age), as well as on suffering permanent incapacity and on death.
Many are not aware that our super savings can also provide some welcome relief during a period of temporary incapacity.
However strict rules apply that need to be carefully understood.
Moreover, not all super funds or SMSF trust deeds provide this support. Thus it is worthwhile checking whether you are covered, just in case it is ever needed.
