Am I eligible for the KiwiSaver annual Government contribution?

Last Updated: 11 Apr 2022

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

  • are a member of a KiwiSaver scheme,
  • are 18 or older,
  • are not yet eligible to make retirement withdrawals,
  • 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).
