First Home Super Saver Scheme (FHSSS)

The maximum releasable amount

The Government will increase the maximum releasable amount of voluntary concessional and non-concessional contributions under the FHSSS from $30,000 to $50,000 if legislation passes.

The Pension Loan Scheme (PLS) currently allows a fortnightly loan of up to 150% of the maximum rate of age pension to boost a person’s retirement income by unlocking capital in their real estate.  Interest is compounded fortnightly at 4.50% p.a., and any debt under the scheme is paid back when the property is sold or the person dies.

From 1 July 2022, the Government will introduce no negative equity guarantee.

Borrowers under the PLS, or their estate, will not owe more than the market value of their property should their accrued PLS debt exceeds their property value. This brings the PLS in line with private sector reverse mortgages.
Immediate access to lump sums under the PLS Eligible people will be able to access up to two lump sum advances in any 12-month period, up to a total value of 50% of the maximum annual rate of age pension (currently $12,385 for singles and $18,670 for couples).
