Challenging the distribution of superannuation funds

If you are the spouse, de-facto, child, stepchild, grandchild or parent of a person who has died and adequate provision has not been made for you in their will you may be able to make a Family Provision Act claim.

We act for people who want to make this type of claim and also act for executors who want to defend them.

If you have been left out of will or have not received what you expected to receive you may be able to challenge the will. The most common ground to challenge the will is that the deceased when they made the will lacked the required level of mental capacity.

We act for people who want to make this type of claim and also act for executors who want to defend them.

When a person dies their superannuation, which can include very substantial insurance cover, is not paid out in accordance with their will. Instead it is distributed by the Trustee of the Superannuation Fund. In some circumstances the Trustee has a very wide discretion as to who the superannuation funds will be paid to.

If you are the spouse, de-facto, child or were in an interdependency relationship with the person who has died you may be able to challenge the way that the Trustee has decided to pay out the superannuation funds. This challenge can be made at the Australian Financial Complaints Authority.

We have extensive experience in making complaints to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority on behalf of clients.
