The financial year the primary pension member passes away


A pension ceases as soon as the member in receipt of the pension dies unless a dependent beneficiary is automatically entitled to a reversionary pension. When the pension automatically reverts, there is a requirement for the minimum pension amount to continue to be paid.

When it is not a reversionary account based pension, a minimum pension payment is not required in the year of death.

If the deceased member’s benefits are used to commence a new pension for a beneficiary, you need to ensure the new minimum annual pension amount is paid in the relevant year. 

When a pension recipient dies during the income year and the pension was reversionary, the minimum percentage factor is based on the age of the member who was in receipt of the pension as at 1 July of the current income year, not the reversionary beneficiary. No change is required in Simple Fund 360, You can continue to post to the nominated pension account (41600/MemberCode) and record the Date of Death for the deceased member in the Contacts list.  The minimum will be recalculated 1 July based on the reversionary beneficiary's age at that time.

Relevant documentation confirming that the pension will be transferred to a reversionary beneficiary on and from the death of the primary pensioner will need to be completed. Documentation will need to be done outside Simple Fund 360. However, you can upload the documentation in the Documents tab.

Subsequent Financial Year - Commencing Reversionary Pension


The minimum pension calculation will be based on the age of the nominated beneficiary. An internal transfer will need to be recorded in Simple Fund 360.

If the beneficiary was not a member of the fund prior to death or does not have an accumulation balance: 

  1. Add an accumulation account for the beneficiary to transfer the pension balance; (If the transfer occurs part way through the  year, you will need to Create Entries the day before the event)
  2. Transfer the deceased member's pension balance to the beneficiary's accumulation account (see below)
  3. Complete a pension commencement for the beneficiary to commence the pension; 
  4. If the deceased member had multiple pension accounts to be reverted, you will need to repeat this steps 3 and 4 again for each pension;
  5. Input a cease date and date of death for the deceased member. 

If the nominated beneficiary is already a member of the fund and has an existing accumulation account, to complete the transfer:

  1. Input a temporary cease date in the existing accumulation account of the nominated beneficiary in the Member List;
  2. Add a new temporary accumulation account for the beneficiary to transfer the pension balance;
  3. Transfer the deceased member's pension balance to the beneficiary's accumulation account (see below)
  4. Complete a pension commencement for the new account; 
  5. If the deceased member had multiple pension accounts to be reverted, you will need to repeat this steps 3 and 4 again for each pension;
  6. Remove the temporary cease date input in step 1;
  7. Input a cease date and a date of death for the deceased member
