    If you do get jobs super is paid by your employer but 10 years worth would probably not be much , you can pay extra into the super fund though I think the rule for Centrelink pensions is resident for 10 years but not sure ,look at their website for information Have you got immigration visas as I always thought there is a cut off period age wise ?

    The Australian state pension is means tested so how much you get will depend on how much other income you receive (if you are PR this includes income from the UK) and how much you have in other assets, although I think the family home is exempt.

     

    I've split your query out from the thread it was in as it's on a slightly different topic and more people will see it and be able to help.

    Hello James and Sally

     

    Have a look at this thread I wrote it gives a good overview of the Australian (Centrelink) Age Pension: http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/pensions-mortgages-ask-vista/33924-australian-age-pension-information-thread.html

     

    The thread was written a few years ago so the figures quoted have changed slightly but the gist of it is still the same.
