#89 – To bind or not to bind – unbundling the great BDBN debate

In many holistic estate planning exercises, superannuation is either the second largest – or largest – asset.

As superannuation savings continue to accumulate the number of disputes in relation to death benefit payments also seems to be growing.

Particularly in the SMSF space, it is critical for advisers to understand the interplay between the various superannuation rules on the payment of a death benefit; not least of which the decision on whether to utilise some form of binding nomination.

This webinar will help advisers get off risk in this area by exploring a range of issues, including:

  1. The various forms of superannuation nominations
  2. Why binding nominations are rarely the right approach
  3. What exactly is a ‘superannuation will’
  4. What wins: BDBN or reversionary pension
  5. Should I be concerned about the notional estate regime
  6. Story sharing, including from leading court cases
