10.1.10.80 Former Residents & Agreements

Former residents

A former resident who returns to Australia and claims, or transfers to, a pension will not be able to take their pension overseas with them if they subsequently leave Australia within 24 months (7.1.4).

 

Some of Australia's agreements protect people paid under the agreement from this rule.

 

An autonomous pensioner can transfer to an agreement pension to maintain qualification and portability if they go to an agreement country that covers that pension.

 

In both cases, the rate of portable pension payable and the period of portability will be determined by the relevant agreement.
