PRODUCT INFORMATION

ORDERING YOUR BDBN WITH CONFIDENCE

For your peace of mind, Topdocs provides non-lapsing standard and complex binding death benefit nominations with legal review provided by Topdocs Legal.

As binding death benefit nominations are legal documents, often with high dollar value, preparation by a non legal professional carries significant risk. We remove this risk by having our in-house lawyers individually sign off each binding death benefit nomination, confirming that it has been completed, signed and witnessed in accordance with legal requirements.

Binding Death Benefit Nomination Beneficiaries ... [more]

A deceased member’s death benefits can generally only be paid to one or more of their dependants and/or their legal personal representative. Hence, the only people who can be nominated in a BDBN are one or more of their dependants and/or their legal personal representative.

A person’s dependants include their spouse, any child, any person with whom they have an interdependency relationship and any person who is financially dependent on them. Spouse includes same-sex de facto spouse and child includes adopted child, stepchild, ex-nuptial child and child of the person’s spouse. Two persons have an interdependency relationship if they have a close personal relationship and either:

  • they live together and one or each of them provides the other with financial and domestic support and personal care; or
  • they do not satisfy the other requirements of an interdependency relationship because either or both of them suffer from a physical, intellectual or psychiatric disability or they are temporarily living apart, eg because one of them is temporarily living overseas.

A deceased person’s legal personal representative means the executor of their will or administrator of their estate.
