If you pass away, superannuation does not automatically form part of your estate. Depending on your super fund, the trustee will
either pay your death benefit to your estate or use its discretion to decide who will be the beneficiaries unless you complete a
binding death benefit nomination, that is valid when you pass away.
Completing a valid nomination allows you to choose your beneficiaries, instead of leaving the choice to your fund’s trustee. Click here for our fact sheet.
