ATO Site Crash Blamed on Rush to Access Super Early

It appears that the first day of the new financial year has seen a rush to access the second tranche of the governments early access to super scheme, which has caused the ATO site to crash, according to media reports. The access page has frozen due to high demand. As of today, Australians who qualify will be able to withdraw a further $10,000 from their superannuation as part of the governments controversial “stimulus response” to the coronavirus pandemic. It shows there is still a need for better advice for Australian consumers.
