Starting a new member is easy. First, you’ll need to determine which scheme your new employee is eligible for.

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.


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

Once you’ve determined which scheme your new employee should be in, just complete the online registration process in the employer portal.
