If you're self-employed or not working, you agree with your KiwiSaver provider how much you want to contribute, and make payments directly to them.
When you can get your money?
Your KiwiSaver savings will generally by locked in until:
- you're eligible for NZ Super (currently 65), or
- you've been a member for at least 5 years (if you joined over the age of 60).
You may be able to make an early withdrawal of part (or all) of your savings if you're:
- buying your first home
- moving overseas permanently
- suffering significant financial hardship
- seriously ill
We can help you with all of the above.
What you will get when you retire?
NZ Super provides for a basic standard of living in retirement, but it may not be enough for the kind of retirement you want. Having a KiwiSaver account doesn't affect your eligibility for NZ Super or reduce the amount of NZ Super you would be eligible for.
KiwiSaver savings will complement NZ Super to provide you with a better standard of living for your retirement.

Talking to your personal financial planning adviser expands your knowledge on the best strategy to take.
