To get the Aged Pension, you must be under the income and assets test limits and be an Australian resident, normally for at least 10 years.

https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au...nk/age-pension

For at least 5 of these years, there must be no break in your residence.

Your income and assets will determine your eligibility to the aged pension welfare payment.

I would expect you should be OK with that. The 55 years residency seems to covers that.

Not sure about back pay though. You need to submit a claim to Centrelink once you arrive.
