You can take the hassle out of selecting which fund or funds are right for you by investing in the AMP Lifesteps Investment Programme (Lifesteps).

Lifesteps helps to ensure that you're invested in the fund that will suit your needs at each stage in your life.

Need help choosing a fund?

It’s important that you choose the fund or funds that are right for you. This will depend on what your goals are for your savings, how comfortable you are with taking risks, and what stage of life you’re at.

Contact us or talk to an adviser about how to get started.

Why not join an award winning KiwiSaver scheme?

It’s good to know your savings are being managed in an award-winning scheme. In 2015, the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme received the highest possible platinum rating for being a ‘best value for money’ KiwiSaver Scheme, in the independent SuperRatings review.

Seven of the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme funds also received ‘Silver’ analyst ratings from Morningstar in 2014 – the highest award ever presented for diversified funds in a KiwiSaver scheme.

In addition, the AMP Default Fund was awarded a 5-star CANSTAR rating in both 2013 and 2014 in the Conservative category, recognising its outstanding value.

KiwiSaver is designed to be flexible around the way and the amount you contribute, so whether you’re in a permanent job, freelancing, running your own business, or not working at all, there’ll be an option to suit the way you want to save.

You can contribute to the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme via:

  • deductions from PAYE payments through your employer – at a rate of either 3%,4% or 8% of your gross salary or wages
  • regular contributions via direct debit- at a minimum of $50 per payment
  • lump-sum contributions direct to AMP or via Inland Revenue- can be made at any time, but each contribution must be for at least $50.

Find out more about contributing to the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme.

While KiwiSaver is designed to help you save for your retirement, it’s flexible enough to keep up with other changes that could happen in your life.

You can make withdrawals when you reach your qualifying date, however, you may also have other opportunities to use your savings before you retire. Provided you meet the criteria, this might apply to you in the case of:

  • a purchase of your first home
  • significant financial hardship
  • serious illness
  • permanent emigration (not to Australia)
  • withdrawal of Australian retirement savings (from age 60 provided you have retired under Australian law).

If the unthinkable happens and you pass away before you retire, your KiwiSaver savings will be payable to your estate.
Inland Revenue has some rules about how all of these withdrawals work and which types of contributions you can withdraw for different situations.
