Who is Eligible to Join?
You are eligible to join S.A. Superannuants if you are receiving, or are eligible to receive, a superannuation pension paid from the South Australian Superannuation Fund or a Commonwealth Government
Prior to February, 2003 only people actually receiving a pension were eligible to join but at the Association’s 2003 AGM the rules were changed to allow membership for pension scheme members still at work. The reasons for this change were:
- a recognition that the interests of pension scheme members still at work and those already retired were closely related as far as superannuation is concerned
- to increase membership of the Association
