Will your Super Fund pay for your surgery?

Yes, it is possible to access your own Superannuation to pay for your Plastic Surgery in some cases where you meet the strict criteria.

By applying through a special government program, your Superannuation Fund can sometimes be accessed early to pay for your life-changing surgery.

This is most likely to apply to Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Breast Reduction, Body Contouring, Arm lift, Nose Surgery or Skin Reduction after significant weight loss or Bariatric Surgery.

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) will assess your Early Super Fund Access application (SEF Form) for medical procedures that treat life-threatening illnesses or chronic pain.

The final decision, however, will be made by your own Super Fund as some funds will not allow withdrawal. Find out more by visiting the ATO website or contacting a company like Supercare who charge a fee to help you with the process.
