History

Combined Pensioners & Superannuants Association of NSW Inc (CPSA) was founded in 1931 to serve the interests of pensioner groups in the state of New South Wales. In response to pension cuts at that time, a number of independent pensioner groups decided to join forces to deal with ‘all matters affecting the common interests of pensioners’. These groups became CPSA Branches.

CPSA now has a broad mission to improve the living standards, community services and rights of pensioners of all ages, superannuants and low income retirees, as well as promoting their rights and dignity.

Today, membership of CPSA includes a network of approximately 20,000 people through 100 branches, affiliated organisations and individual members.

CPSA receives government grants so that we can represent the views of its members to government at all levels and also provide a variety of information and advocacy services for the benefit of NSW residents.
