The use of binding nominations, reversionary pensions and powers of attorney with SMSFs paper


When considering and advising with how super benefits can be dealt with on a member's death or incapacity it is crucial to have the right 'tools'. This paper examines some of those tools, including:

  • How binding death benefit nominations, reversionary pensions and enduring powers of attorney (financial) operate or can fail
  • How these instruments can work together in the super/estate planning arena
  • When binding nominations and reversionary pensions take precedence over the other
  • Illustrating how an enduring power of attorney (financial) can be used where a trustee loses capacity.
