If I retire in the UK can I still receive an Australian pension for the 20+ years I worked there?

Hi @bbrownuk

 

If you're an Australian citizen or a permanent resident that has left Australia you can access your super in the same was as if you still lived here. Our page on withdrawing and using your super should explain this further. 

 

If you were considered a temporary resident while working in Australia you may be able to withdraw your super through the Departing Australia Superannuation Payment (DASP)

 

Have a read through those pages and let us know if you have any questions. Hope this helps.
