Nominate your beneficiaries

It’s never easy thinking about what might happen after you pass away but deciding what to do with your retirement savings is a small step you can take to gain control of the future. Nominating a beneficiary means the trustees of your Plan know how and to who you wish your benefits to be paid. It’ll give your loved ones one less thing to worry about at a difficult time.

It’s equally important these details are kept up to date, especially following milestone life events like getting married, divorced or having children.
