Remember, limited services apply from 22 April ahead of the APSS merger with Australian Retirement Trust on 30 April.

This category of membership provides eligible members with a defined benefit with accrual rates above the Superannuation Guarantee and includes total and permanent disablement (TPD) and death benefits in addition to retirement/leaving service benefits.

Remember - different members have different benefits!
Death and TPD benefits are not the same across all APSS member categories. The example on this page is for a 14.3% member. If you’re an ‘SG’ or ‘CSS’ member, or if you have insurance through an APSS Spouse or Rollover account, please refer to your annual benefit statement and the relevant Product Disclosure Statement for details on how entitlements apply on death or TPD. Also, please remember that there are strict rules governing the payment of your APSS benefit if you suffer TPD. Don’t assume it’s automatically paid just because you can no longer work as a result of an illness or injury. Read your Product Disclosure Statement for details.

Note: There are procedures in place to make sure your superannuation salary will generally not decrease if your pay decreases.
