Super Care

What is SuperCare?

No one should have to live with poor dental health simply because they can not afford it. SuperCare is an excellent option for families who require extensive dental treatment but do not have health insurance, do not have the funds to pay for it, and have one family member with Superannuation.
SuperCare is a program run by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) that allows consumers to apply for financial assistance for dental and orthodontic procedures through the Early Release of Superannuation (ERS) Program. Through SuperCare, you can have early access to your retirement savings to help pay for medical operations like dental care. You can apply to have your retirement savings used to pay for your treatment, your partner’s treatment, or the treatment of your children. You can apply for financial assistance to cover the total treatment cost or just a portion of it.

How Does SuperCare Work?

With a recommendation from Smiles in Currambine, SuperCare can acquire permission for any dental or orthodontic treatment. You might be able to utilize your retirement funds to cover out-of-pocket dental costs for yourself or your kids. You don’t have to wait until you’re 65 to utilize your retirement funds.
In collaboration with Smiles in Currambine, SuperCare’s consultants will guide you through every step of the process. The 8-step application procedure at SuperCare is efficient and straightforward, allowing patients to receive high-quality dental care as soon as possible.

Step 1: Make an appointment with Smiles in Currambine.

Step 2: Smiles in Currambine will submit your information to SuperCare via the online referral form.

Step 3: You will be contacted by a SuperCare consultant to discuss your eligibility.

Step 4: As soon as you sign up for SuperCare, you will be a client. The Compassionate Release of Super (CRS) application process will begin.

Step 5: SuperCare will contact Smiles in Currambine to request the supporting documents for your CRS claim.

Step 6: Smiles in Currambine will sign the CRS form.

Step 7: Once the application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the ATO. The assessment process usually takes ten business days from the moment an application is submitted.

Step 8: This is the final step in the application process: approval. Smiles in Currambine will be notified, and the super will be released 5-7 business days later.

Eligibility Requirements for SuperCare

All Australian citizens and permanent residents with super are eligible for a SuperCare payment. 

 The definitions of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993, on the other hand, determine a family member’s eligibility.

 SuperCare can tell you whether or not your family members are eligible for Compassionate Release of Super (CRS), as well as specific treatments for which they may be eligible.
