You are age 55 or older and served for over 30 years. As a long serving member of the ADF and DFRDB, you will be entitled to a high level of retirement pay for your rank.

To apply for your benefit, please use our Application for DFRDB retirement pay, commutation and superannuation productivity (including MilitarySuper ancillary benefit) form [PDF 1 MB].

Other issues may include:

  • making any commutation option within six months of retirement
  • considering any tax implications of your decisions
  • keeping DFRDB informed of your details once retired for your retirement pay.
