Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC) is the Trustee for the Defence Force Retirement and Death Benefits Scheme (DFRDB), MilitarySuper (MSBS) and the ADFSuper Scheme. CSC schemes are set up solely to meet the superannuation needs of Australian Government employees and members of the Australian Defence Forces. They're appointed by the Australian Government to maximise members' benefits and act in members' best interests.
If you leave the ADF as medically unfit for further service, you may be eligible for an invalidity benefit. Invalidity benefits help you meet your income needs in retirement or transitioning to civilian life. Your superannuation entitlements depend on your personal circumstances. You'll need to contact your superannuation fund or your financial adviser to receive tailored advice.
