Upon a member’s death, the trustees of the Fund will need access to information on the member’s dependants. This important information will assist them with the decision on allocating the member’s available fund death benefits as fairly as possible.
To make it easier for members to submit their information, the administrator has made an online web facility available where members may capture their nominations. Members may access this new functionality via the web or the fund’s mobile app.
Participating employers and their benefit consultants should note that both the new online facility as well as manually completed forms will be accepted by the trustees when they make their decisions regarding allocating a members’ death benefits. The most recently dated nomination will be used as the final wishes of a member.
Existing completed forms in possession of the employer remains valid and should be kept on record by the employer and only submitted to Sanlam on the death of a member. Note that only members have access to the online facility to capture their nominations (employers and consultants are not able to capture this information on behalf of a member).
