Hi all, can anyone tell me if my parents emigrate under the CPV visa whether theyd be entitled to any Australian pension after the 10 year waiting period and how much theyd get? Cheers

I was under the impression you had to live / work for ten years in aussie to get a seniors pension, but i may stand corrected

I asked the same question on here a few months ago and the reply I got said that they are doing away with the Australian State Pensions and not to rely on gettin one at all. You have to be working anyway at least 10 years to be entitled to it if it still exists but basically you have to rely on your Superannuation Pension - Sharron
