Binding Death Benefit Nomination
If there is not a Binding Death Benefit Nomination in place, it is not unusual for the superannuation fund trustees to reject claims by people who expected to receive all or some of the deceased’s death benefits. If claims are rejected, legal advice should be sought. Murdoch Lawyers can assist in making representations to the fund’s trustees and the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal. It is important to note that strict time limits apply to such applications.
