Death benefit

If you die before you withdraw your deferred CSS benefit, your eligible spouse is entitled to 67% of the CPI-indexed pension you would have received on becoming an invalid.

In addition, your member and productivity components can be paid as a lump sum amount or exchanged for an additional non-indexed pension.

If you are not survived by any eligible dependants, your member and productivity components will be paid to your estate as a lump sum amount, plus an allowance (if applicable) for Superannuation Guarantee contributions.
