Individuals can only make one application in a financial year. You can make up to one application before the end of this financial year on 30 June 2020, and one in the next financial year, provided you do so before 24 September 2020.

This means that if you request an amount of less than $10,000 in an application, you cannot make a subsequent application in the same financial year to release the difference between the originally requested amount and the $10,000 limit.

However, if you have multiple accounts, you are able to nominate more than one account (up to a maximum of five in a single application) from which amounts are to be released, up to the total of $10,000
