Can an ABP be added to by way of contributions or roll-over once it has commenced?

No.  Once an ABP has commenced, the superannuation law provides that the capital supporting the ABP cannot be added to by way of contribution or roll-over.

Contributions can continue to be made for the pensioner after the ABP has commenced, however, they would be paid into a separate accumulation account for the pensioner, rather than into the pension account.
