Am I eligible for the KiwiSaver annual Government contribution (member tax credit)?

Last Updated: 29 Nov 2016

You will be eligible for the annual Government contribution if you:

  • are between 18 and the KiwiSaver retirement age (the age you are eligible for New Zealand Superannuation (currently 65) or, if you first joined KiwiSaver or a complying superannuation fund over the age of 60, five years after you joined),
  • 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).
