A reversionary beneficiary allows you to feel secure in knowing that if you were to pass away—your pension will go straight to the person you nominated.

Keep in mind


  • This type of nomination applies to pension accounts only
    Are you looking for a different type of beneficiary nomination?
  • All required sections of the form need to be completed
    You’ll need to complete every required section of the form accurately
  • The person(s) you nominate must be your dependant
  • If your nominated dependant is a child, they are only eligible to receive your superannuation as a series of payments if, at the time of your death they are:
    • Under the age of 18; or
    • 18 or over and they are also:
      • under 25 and financially dependent on you; or
      • permanently disabled (specific criteria apply).
  • In all other cases a child may only receive your superannuation as a single payment upon your death. If this is the case, you cannot nominate them as a reversionary beneficiary
  • No online submissions accepted – we need original signatures
