Nomination of Beneficiary Form

If you die while working for Woolworths, the death benefits that are payable to your beneficiaries are investigated and distributed by the Board of Trustees. This is governed by the section 37C of the Pension Funds Act. Fund benefits do not form part of your estate and are therefore not distributed according to your will. When dealing with the payment of your death benefits, you as the member do not necessarily have the final say.

Nominating your beneficiaries

It is most important that you keep your Nomination of Beneficiary Form current and up-to-date. You must update your Beneficiary Nomination Form whenever your personal circumstances change.

For example:

  • If you get married
  • If you get divorced
  • If you have a child
  • If a dependent family member dies, etc.
