‘Departing Australia super payment’ (DASP) allows temporary residents to claim their Australian super when they leave the country.
The super may be claimed:
- Online using the ‘Temporary residents online application’; or
- By downloading the form ‘Application for a departing Australia superannuation payment’.
The super may be transferred to the Tax Office if the temporary resident failed to claim it within six months after their departure.
Individuals that are not eligible to claim DASP include:
- Australian citizens;
- New Zealand citizens;
- Permanent Australian residents;
- Retirement visa holders; and
- Investor retirement visa holders.
The DASP will usually be paid out within 28 days after receiving the application, unless extra time is required for further supporting documents.
– DASP will be received as a lump sum and may be subject to tax.
