Why can’t I withdraw my super when I like?
Superannuation is a long-term investment, designed to give you financial support when you retire. It’s taxed differently to your income and not generally accessible until you reach your ‘preservation age’ (retirement). You can’t access it when you feel like in order to give your account balance a chance to grow.
