As superannuation falls outside your estate, there are few items to consider in your estate plans.

Where there is a Power of Attorney, ensure it allows a trusted person to attend to changes to the superannuation balance if the member becomes ill before implementing advice.

Check that pensions are properly documented as reversionary in super funds, if appropriate.

Review estate planning strategies if a person and their beneficiary have a combined superannuation balance (including insurance) over $1.6 million.

This includes insurances in super which could count towards the transfer balance cap.
