Temporary residents and conditions of release
Where a member is a current or former temporary resident (and is not an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or New Zealand citizen, or the holder of a Subclass 405 Investor Retirement visa or a Subclass 410 Retirement visa), they can only satisfy one of the following conditions of release:
- former temporary resident departing Australia
- unclaimed money payments
- terminal medical condition
- permanent incapacity
- temporary incapacity
- where the trustee is given a release authority (eg for the release of excess contributions)
- any other condition of release satisfied prior to 1 April 2009.
Different tax treatment may also apply to withdrawals by temporary residents; for example, the withdrawal of benefits by a former temporary resident departing Australia is taxed as a Departing Australia Super Payment.
