If you have lost a loved one, you can lodge a death benefit claim with their superannuation fund, which may include a life insurance payment. All superannuation funds will have a death benefit policy.
Death Benefits are paid to the surviving partner, children or dependants. The distribution of payment is decided by the super fund not the deceased’s will. This is why it is important to seek legal advice before pursuing a Death Benefit claim.
Death Benefits are also accessible if you or a loved one is suffering from a Terminal Illness. A Terminal Illness is any medical condition resulting in a life expectancy of less than two years.
