Add these reminders to your calendar or jot them down on your brand-new planner so you don’t forget!
Get a top up from the Government
For every dollar you put into your KiwiSaver account, the Government contributes 50 cents (up to $521.43 each year). Am I eligible for the Government contributions?
Keep in mind that you’ll need to contribute at least $1,043 between 1 July to 30 June each year to get the full amount.
Maximising your retirement savings
Three ways to make the most of your savings:
- Knowing how much you will need to retire
- Ensuring you pay the right amount of tax. View our PIR guide
- Making sure you’re in the best fund for you. Take a look at what fund suits you best with our KiwiSaver fund selector tool.
Do you have a plan, should the worst happen?
If you don’t have a will, your money won’t necessarily go straight to your partner or children. It’s never too early to put a plan in place, should the worst happen. Tips on how to plan should the worst happen
If you already have a will, it’s a good idea to review it annually.
