Nominating beneficiaries

If you make a non-binding (or preferred) death benefit nomination, we will decide which of your beneficiaries (and in what proportions) will receive your benefit in the event of your death. We will generally pay your nominated beneficiary/beneficiaries " however, depending on your circumstances at the time of your death, we may decide to pay your death benefit differently.

When making this nomination, you can only nominate beneficiaries who are either:

  • a dependant, or
  • your Estate/Legal Personal Representative.

Under superannuation law, we are unable to pay death benefits to beneficiaries that do not fall into one of the above categories.

When you make a nomination, we will not normally check whether:

  • your nominated beneficiaries on the nomination form are your dependants or your Legal Personal Representative
  • you have signed or completed the nomination form correctly.

A non-binding nomination will continue to apply until you cancel or change your nomination. Therefore, it is important that you keep your non-binding nomination up to date in line with your personal circumstances.

You can cancel or change your nomination at any time.

If you cancel your non-binding nomination without making another nomination, we must pay your death benefit to your Estate in accordance with making no nomination. However, if you are a former National Preservation Trust (NPT) member, different rules apply - please refer to the Former National Preservation Trust (NPT) members section for further information.

Tax implications

The amount of tax that a person will have to pay if they receive any of your death benefit might be different depending on whether you nominate them as a nominated or preferred beneficiary, or whether you nominate your Estate and they receive the payment through your Estate. This is because of different definitions in tax and superannuation laws.

For example: All children are dependants" in superannuation law and can be nominated as your beneficiary-in tax law, only a child under 18 years of age is a "dependant" (unless they are a financial dependant), and may pay a different rate of tax to a non-dependant child.

Therefore, before you consider making a nomination, we strongly recommend that you discuss your nomination with your financial planner.
