The rule you mention about the 6 months applies to all australians. Unless they approve you take the pension with you, it is stopped after a period of time.
Here is the agreement between the us and australia
You have to speak to centrelink and they will give you more details about getting the pension overseas. Because you have been here for 10 years you can get a proportion and all of this is in the following link
But is it not going to be easy because our system is not a user pay system like the superannuation systems of many countries.
I will opt out.
I am a Solicitor but cannot give legal advise on here only information.
