ISBN: 9781485138914


Publisher’s summary: “Pension Law and Death Benefits: Law, Practice and Policy Harmonisation in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) discusses the complex area of pension law relating to the distribution of death benefits in the SADC region, with a focus on developments in South Africa, Botswana, Malawi, Eswatini and Lesotho. When a member of a pension fund dies in any of these five countries, there are specific provisions in the law that regulate how their death benefits should be distributed.

The book is predicated on the specific practices in these countries but also on the obligations of SADC countries to harmonise their laws governing pension funds. It demonstrates how these countries have harmonised their laws, policies, and practices in death benefits to prevent regulatory arbitrage and promote greater integration. Given this harmonisation project, the book discusses how judiciaries and tribunals in these countries have developed the law in a manner that promotes these goals.”
