KiwiSaver

KiwisaverAre you prepared for your retirement? If you have made no plans other than living off of New Zealand’s Superannuation, you may not be able to maintain your current lifestyle that you are accustomed to.

KiwiSaver is an easy and affordable way to save for retirement. KiwiSaver is a voluntary based savings scheme set up by the NZ Government to help New Zealanders save for their retirement. You can choose to contribute 3%, 4% or 8% of your gross (before tax) income to your KiwiSaver account. Your employer has to contribute as well, matching at least 3% of your gross income.

Your funds are invested on your behalf by the KiwiSaver provider of your choice. If you don't choose a provider, Inland Revenue will assign you one of the nine default KiwiSaver schemes, which could prove a disadvantage to you, when it comes to maximising your return on investment.
