Withdrawing impacts

A member may voluntarily withdraw from Gold State Super. Withdrawing from Gold State Super does not mean paying a Gold State Super benefit. If a member withdraws from Gold State Super, their benefit will be preserved until they are aged 55* and cease work, or are working less than 10 hours a week.

Please refer to the Gold State Super essentials brochure for information a member should consider before withdrawing from Gold State Super.

Alternatively, call GESB's Member Services Centre on 13 43 72.

*From 1 July 2015, the preservation age will progressively increase for individuals born on or after 1 July 1960. Gold State Super members are still able to access their benefit from age 55, if they have ceased working in the WA public sector, or are working less than 10 hours a week. However, there may be tax implications for accessing your Gold State Super benefit before your preservation age, so you should speak to your financial adviser before taking action.
