Nominate a beneficiary

When a person dies, the Trustee of the super fund will generally pay the super benefit to the member’s nominated beneficiary.

Your nomination can be a non-binding or a binding nomination.

For a binding nomination, you may nominate one or more dependants or your legal personal representative to receive your super.

If a deceased person did not make a nomination, the trustee of the Fund may:

  • use their discretion to decide which dependant or dependants the death benefit is paid to
  • make a payment to the deceased’s legal personal representative (executor of the deceased estate) for distribution according to the instructions in the deceased’s will.

If a non-binding nomination was made by the deceased, the trustee of the Fund may:

  • use their discretion to pay in accordance with the non-binding nomination
  • make a payment to the deceased’s legal personal representative (executor of the deceased estate) for distribution according to the instructions in the deceased’s will.

If you are about commence an account-based pension, you can also nominate a reversionary nomination. This means your nominee such as your spouse could continue to receive the pension payments after you die. This nomination must occur before your account-based pension commences.

How to nominate a beneficiary

If you wish to make a binding nomination, you must complete the binding nomination form. The form must be witnessed, and you must nominate a valid beneficiary. A valid beneficiary is a dependant of the deceased if at the time of their death you were:

  • their spouse or de facto spouse
  • a child of the deceased (any age)
  • a person in an interdependency relationship with the deceased.

An interdependency relationship exists between two people if:

  • they have a close personal relationship
  • they live together
  • one or each of them provides the other with financial support and
  • one or each of them provides the other with domestic support and personal care.

If you wish to make a non-binding nomination, you can also complete the binding nomination form or you can provide your nomination via Member Access.
