Death and Superannuation

Death and Superannuation

, ,
Superannuation is becoming one of the largest (if not the largest) asset a person holds at the time of their death. However, contrary to popular belief, your superannuation is not automatically covered by your will. Instead most super funds allow you to nominate a person or persons to be paid your super in the event of your death.
Life Admin 2020. Get a Will . Don't leave it too late to tick the box.

Make 2020 the year to sort your Estate Plan

Is one of your new year resolutions to get on top of your life admin? Do you have up to date estate planning documents? Australians are generally pretty good at making sure they have adequate insurances to cover circumstances relating to health, cars and property. However according to the NSW Government a staggering 45% of Australians do not have a valid will and for many that have one, the documents are out of date and do not reflect current wishes.

7 spots to cool off in the Sutherland Shire this summer

With the warmer weather now here and summer on its way, it’s hot and you want to cool off. Why not try a different spot next time you head down for a swim?


Thank you for your very friendly and professional help in getting all of our affairs sorted in such a short time. We are very glad we came to Southern Waters Legal, ad we’re really appreciative of the professional manner and advice with which we received.

- Wayne & Margaret, Estate Planning Client

I would like to convey the excellent professional service Southern Waters Legal has provided in dealing with my matter for more then 2 years. I would like to personally acknowledge and thank Taryn Cowan for her expertise, professionalism and commitment to my matter.

- Denise, Litigation Dispute client

Family law can be very daunting but Leona Bennett removed all the confusion of the ‘legal jargon’ and step by step walked me through the family court process. Leona made it simple and I always had a full understanding of what was happening and made clear decisions for the final outcome. Leona and her team were there for me, working their wisdom to always provide greater clarity and support.

- Cheryl, Family Law Client

Southern Waters Legal are professional and friendly from the first initial phone call and make you feel like no question is too silly to ask in relation to your matter and you don’t go away with more questions or not understanding what was happening. I would recommend Southern Water Legal to anyone needing to resolve a Family Law matter by a professional and friendly firm who care about their clients.

- Jennifer, Family Law client

Simon, Leona and all their staff dealt with my Estate Planning and Family Law matter in such a professional manner, I cannot thank them enough. The care and patience shown to me during the time of my matters was truly amazing! Again thank you all so much.

- Glen, Estate Planning & Family Law Client

I have been a client of Southern Waters Legal for a number of years now. It is at specific times in our life that you really value integrity and honesty in those you deal with. Simon and Leona and the team have helped me organise our affairs at a very tough time in my life, they have provided wise counsel, legal support and hand holding as I went through the sale of my family home and moving to new premises. I have received possibly the best financial advice that is reaping rewards for me now. Thank you to a wonderful team of professionals. Thank you
