I am a UK national. I worked in Australia for nearly five years and paid into an Australian pension scheme with MLC. I di have p[ermanent residency status but I believe that this has now expired due to me not being resident in Australia for several years.
I returned to the UK seven years ago and intend to stay here. I am considering my retirement options. I am currently 57.
What options do I have to:-
- Have the cash value (or n allowed amount) of my Australian pension paid to me in the UK as alump sum.
- Take the Australian pension as a normal pension but paid to me in the UK.
