Retirement Funds – Section 37C

3.5 CPD

R342.08

A key task a board of trustees face is the allocation and distribution of benefits on the death of a member. This process is governed by section 37C of the Pension Funds Act, but the length of that section in the Act disguises the fact that this is not a straight-forward process. This course will equip you to understand and implement section 37 C.
