    Hi SP

    Given the $ and issues involved the trustee should get professional advice.

    I assumme the surviving member is the spouse of the deceased and is entitled to receive the superannuation as a death benefit.

    Yes a spouse can receive a death benefit as a pension and or lump sum payments under SIS regulation 6.21(2) – (3). If the lump sum payments are more than 2 payments this would technically be a breach of this regulation.
