    My question to all you good folks is,

    If I am a Permanent Resident or Citizen of Australia and I give up these visas and move overseas, do I get back my superannuation ?

    If I do, does it get taxed before I get it ?

    ------------------------------------------------------
    As far as I have heard, I do get back the super if i give up my permanent residency, but same doesn't apply if I am a citizen.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Appreciate the help,
