  • provide information to CSS/PSS about the correct cessation reason of a member
  • assist CSS/PSS in the event of a member being retired on invalidity grounds

It is the responsibility of CSS and PSS to assist government departments, agencies and approved authorities (our employers) through provision of administrative support and specialised superannuation services. We aim to provide ease of administration and reduce your workload.
