We also wish to remind you that if you have not completed a nomination of beneficiary form and your circumstances have changes, please complete a new form to ensure that we have updated beneficiary details for you. Please note that for the University of Johannesburg Group Life Policies, you must complete the new unapproved benefit nomination for or your benefits will be paid into your estate and not to your beneficiaries, if you have not yet done so. Please note that in terms of the Long Term Insurance Act we also need you to  complete a funeral nomination form for the payment of your funeral benefit. If you have not completed the form, your funeral benefit will also be paid into your estate. The completed forms can be submitted to the pensions office or for filing on your UJ personal file. Please note that these forms are treated as confidential.
