Am I eligible for the KiwiSaver annual Government contribution?

Last Updated: 24 May 2019

You will be eligible for the annual Government contribution (also known as a member tax credit) if you:

  • are between 18 and the KiwiSaver retirement age (the age you are eligible for New Zealand Superannuation (currently 65) or, five years after you joined if you first joined KiwiSaver or a complying superannuation fund before 1 July 2019 and were aged 60-64),
  • reside mainly in New Zealand (or you’re a state services employee working outside New Zealand or work overseas for some charities), and
  • contributed to your KiwiSaver account during the year

The Government will contribute 50 cents for every dollar you contribute (up to a maximum of $521.43 each year).

You may not receive the full amount if you don’t meet these requirements for the full year (1 July to 30 June).
