But the superannuation company said it was binding

They told me I don't have to sign it again

We hear this from a lot of clients, the superannuation told me this is permanent, I do not have to sign another form.

Unfortunately that simply isn't true.  There is special legislation in NSW that allows a Tribunal, the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal, to review any death benefit nomination that was signed more than three years before the date of death.  The superannuation company might personally treat it as binding, but an aggrieved party could take you before this Tribunal and have it thrown out.
