Accessing superannuation for SRS and FFS

<< < (2/6) > >>

Benni G:
Have just started this process.

I received my letter for srs on Monday and the psychiatrist filled out one of the medical specialist forms.
I will get my GP to do the other form
I have however had trouble communicating with the surgeon, unanswered emails, takes a week via messenger to reply with a one sentence.
I did get a reply via messenger a few weeks ago with a run down of the procedure but, didn't know if that would suffice for a detailed quote for application.

Will let you know how I get on with it

Oh thats exciting news! One thing I found was the difficulty getting the surgeon's to sign the specialist form for super release. What I found was that my GP was also a "Specialist in General Practice" - and DHS was happy for him to endorse both of the forms!

Staying in Australia to have my GCS is not a choice but a necessity. So I wonder if that will make it more difficult to get an early super release because I am not going OS....Even then, I thought the max they would extend was 10K?

No as far as I am aware that will have no bearing on the decision nor the amount. Its not covered under the public health scheme, thats the major deal. If anything, staying with an Aussie surgeon may make it easier.

All the best with it, let me know if you have any questions or queries!
