REGULATION 6.17B   6.17B   DUTY TO SEEK INFORMATION  


If an item of information given by a member in a notice under subregulation 6.17A(4) is not sufficiently clear to allow the trustee to pay the benefit, the trustee must seek from the member a written statement to clarify the item as soon as practicable after the trustee receives the notice.

Example : If the proportion of the benefit that will be paid to the person, or to each person, mentioned in the notice is not certain, or is not readily ascertainable from the notice given by the member, the trustee must seek a statement of that proportion from the member.
