We all want to make things easier for our loved ones. That’s why it’s important to nominate beneficiaries. If something happens, your super benefit is paid according to your wishes.

Why should I nominate beneficiaries?

In the event of your death, if you have a valid binding nomination, the ElectricSuper Board is obliged to pay your super benefit to your nominated beneficiaries. You may confirm, amend or revoke your binding nomination at any time. The beneficiary nomination is valid for a period of three years from when it is signed. It’s important to keep your nomination up-to-date. If you die without a valid nomination, the Board will decide who receives your super benefit (even if you have a made a will).

Who can I nominate?

To be valid, beneficiaries must be classed as your dependant, or legal personal representative (the executor or administrator of your estate).

A dependant includes:

  • Your spouse (married or de facto partner)
  • Your children (including step-children and adopted children)
  • Anyone wholly or partly financially dependent on you
  • Any person you have an interdependency relationship with

You are able to nominate any number of beneficiaries to receive your super benefit. You can split the total payout by choosing the proportion you wish to go to each person.
