How does nominating beneficiaries work?



Your beneficiary options

There are a few options when deciding what happens to your money in the event of your death. 

If you don’t nominate someone we will follow relevant laws to decide who receives your money. This will be to either one or more of your dependants or to your legal personal representative.

Who you can nominate

Your beneficiaries can be:
  • your spouse or partner
  • your children (conditions apply for reversionary beneficiary nominations)
  • interdependants (someone who lives with you and shares a close personal relationship where one or both of you provide financial and domestic support, and personal care of the other)
  • other financial dependants1 (such as someone who relies on you financially)
  • your estate or legal personal representative (not available for reversionary nominations). 
1 As defined by Superannuation law
