 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Accessing benefits is generally only allowed when a member reaches their preservation age and meets one of the specified conditions of release. This session examines key issues pertaining to conditions of release, including:

  • Preservation age and satisfying conditions of release

  • Special circumstances where benefits can be released early

  • What does ‘severe financial hardship’ mean in accessing the fund?

  • Permanent incapacity- definitional dilemmas

  • What does “retirement” mean in this context?

  • Starting a TRIS as an alternative

  • When members are tempted to access early – penalties and consequences

  • Case study – Huckle v Commissioner of Taxation [2014] AATA 362

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
