Temporary residents departing Australia
If you were a temporary resident, you can claim your super when you depart Australia permanently.
This payment is called the Departing Australia Superannuation Payment (DASP). It needs to be claimed within six months of your departure, and the expiry or cancellation of your temporary visa.
You’re not eligible to request a DASP if you:
- Are an Australian or New Zealand citizen
- Hold a permanent or current temporary visa
- Are a temporary resident who has left Australia and receives an income stream
- Hold a retirement visa (subclasses 405 and 410).
You can find more information on DASP on the ATO’s website.
How will my DASP be taxed?
Generally, these tax rates will apply:
|Tax rate for non-working holiday maker visa holders
|Tax rate for working holiday maker visa holders
|Taxable component – taxed element
|Taxable component – untaxed element
How do I claim my DASP?
You can use the ATO’s DASP online application system to apply.
If we still have your super, you can also complete a Application for department Australia superannuation form and return it to us. Otherwise, if the ATO have your super, you complete the Application for payment of ATO-held superannuation money form and return it to the ATO directly.
Terminal medical condition
If you have a terminal medical condition that 2 medical practitioners have certified is likely to result in your death within 24 months of the date of certification, you can apply access all of your super. If approved, any withdrawals you make are tax-free.
