Should you invest in KiwiSaver? Yes

Why should you invest in KiwiSaver?

The government has included a number of benefits which make signing up for KiwiSaver a very worthwhile addition to your personal financial planning strategy. The benefits:

  • An initial $1,000 to kick start your investment in KiwiSaver.
  • Employers are required to match an employee’s contribution up to 3%.
  • If you are over 18 years old, the government will contribute up to $10 per week of your savings through a member tax credit.
