My husband was terminally ill and I had to put him into an aged-care facility, for which I paid a bond of $575,000. We were self-funded retirees aged 67 and 69. The bond came out of our super because that was where our money was. My husband died early this year and when probate was established the bond was returned to me. I would like to put the bond money back into my super but I have been getting conflicting advice about this. Could you please advise me if I can do this and not be taxed?
