Hi and welcome :)
I just posted in my diary about my impatience at having had to wait a little over 2 weeks for DHS to approve my early super release, and now another few weeks for my Super fund to approve it. I honestly don't know how I would cope having to wait 12 months - you guys that do it are so strong!
There is a wealth of knowledge on these forums, and it's a great place to go for advice. Good luck :)
