This service is designed to make existing account-based pensions or transition to retirement income streams reversionary to an eligible dependant (eg, a spouse).

For SMSFs that are currently using DBA Lawyers’ SMSF governing rules and/or pension documents, please note that:

  • Our commencement pension documents include relevant provisions in them for making the pension reversionary. For more information on our pensions, click here.
  • Our SMSF deed has special power included in it to ensure a reversionary nomination will satisfy the automatically reversionary criteria specified by the ATO in TR 2013/5. The BDBN form that comes with our SMSF deed documentation can be used to make a pension reversionary which will override any existing pension (whether a DBA Lawyers or pension from any other supplier). For more information on our SMSF deed, click here.

Should you require 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.
