No matter if you’ve changed names from marriage, are reverting to your prior name, or have legally changed names, you should keep your superannuation accounts updated. Rest, the Retail Employees Superannuation Trust, recommends its members to use its convenient online services for any account updates or requests. If you need to change your name, simply complete the name change form that is easily accessible on the Rest website, and provide your proof of identity to complete the process.
Alternatively, use the change of name form included in your Easy Name Change kit. Provide both your old and new names, plus old and new signatures on the form. You may also use the form to notify a change to banking and payment details (pension members only). Return the form using the pre-addressed mailing slip. You must include a certified copy of your certificate, as listed on the mailing slip.
