KiwiSaver is a voluntary, work-based savings initiative to help you with your long-term saving for retirement.
When you join KiwiSaver you will receive:
- A 3% contribution from your employer
- Government Contributions of up to $521.43 every year
- First home withdrawal
- Up to $10,000 HomeStart grant
- Your money is held in a trust
Our KiwiSaver balance has two ways of growing:
The first is by the amount of money you, your employer and the Government put in, and the second is the returns you earn on your investments. The higher the return you earn on your investments, the bigger your savings at retirement.
