Drawing down funds from Super
Now this may seem an obvious question (to some) however, what are the "rules" from CL regarding the drawing down of funds held in my Super? When I provided all my "assets" Etc, including what I had in my Super fund, prior to going onto the OAP some 9 years ago, on the amount I provided then, I've subsequently drawn down incrimentally over that period. The amount I have in Super now is substantially reduced. CL are always on the lookout for "changes in your circumstances". In my situation, this is obviously a change.
Is the money I've drawn down classed as"income" by CL? I maybe should add that most/all of the money drawn down went into "non income" assets such as repairs/renovation to the family home, a trip or two, but that's about it. Am I going to be slammed by CL for using "my money, Ralph" over time? I'm very hesitant in notifying CL, as I basically don't trust them to not get their claws into me somehow.
