This chapter outlines the eligibility requirements and general features of the Retirement Assistance for Sugarcane Farmers scheme (RASF) which commenced with Royal Assent on 13 July 2004 and ceased on 12 July 2007. The RASF scheme is similar in many ways to the now concluded Retirement Assistance for Farmers Scheme (RAFS).

Note: It may still be possible for a former farmer to participate in the RASF however, the farm transfer must have taken place on or before 12 July 2007 and the eligibility criteria for that period must have been satisfied.
