Start a new member

To start a member you must determine which scheme your new employee is eligible for. 

If your new employee has never previously been a member of CSS, PSS or PSSap, they can nominate a fund of choice. If they do not nominate a fund by their first pay day, you should put them in your default super fund.

PSSap is the default fund (or scheme) for most department and agencies.

Scheme eligibility

PSSap, PSS and CSS membership eligibility falls into the following groups:

  • compulsory PSS membership 
  • membership of PSSap and PSS through employer default fund arrangements
  • optional PSSap and PSS membership 
  • compulsory and optional membership for CSS reappointed members.

The following guides will help you determine which scheme your new employee should be put in.
