The distribution of superannuation death benefits continues to be the largest category of complaints that trustees face. With the imminent start of the Australian Financial Complaints Authority, it is timely to explore a number of complex topics in this area.

Topics to be discussed will include:

  • what are the rights of beneficiaries?
  • how far should a trustee go to locate dependants?
  • for how long can a trustee defer paying the death benefit?
  • what should a trustee do when a dependant is cut out of a will?
  • what should a trustee do if a beneficiary doesn't produce AML documentation?
  • can a trustee ‘remake’ a determination?
  • can a person acting under a power of attorney make a binding nomination?
  • when does a death benefit become unclaimed money payable to the ATO?

What you’ll gain

Certificate of Attendance. This course also contributes to the Trustee Essentials Certificate, which can be combined with experience to gain Trustee Accreditation.
