This service removes any reversionary nomination for account-based pensions.
There are a number of reasons why a member may want to make their pension non-reversionary including:
- They have separated or divorced their spouse who is currently their nominated beneficiary who will obtain their pension when they die
- They would prefer their death benefit be paid to their estate (ie, legal personal representative) and be dealt with in accordance with their will on their death
- They may no longer have an eligible beneficiary to whom a death benefit can be paid in the form of a reversionary pension, eg, their spouse has already passed away

For SMSFs that are currently using DBA Lawyers’ SMSF governing rules and/or pension documents, please note that:
- Our SMSF deed has express powers for the trustee to make a reversionary pension non-reversionary. For further information on our SMSF deed, click here.
- The service does not include a review of estate planning documents including any non-binding or binding death benefit nominations or similar documents. Naturally, it is important for these documents to be consistent with the non-reversionary nature of the pension.
Should you require non-reversionary pension documents for more than one member of an SMSF, please submit a second order form. An additional fee will apply for a second member.
