What are the rules around contributions to KiwiSaver if I'm self-employed or not employed?

Last Updated: 12 Mar 2019

If you are self-employed (and are not paying yourself via PAYE) or not employed, you have the flexibility to stop and start your contributions to the ASB KiwiSaver Scheme at any time and there is currently no minimum contribution level.

If you wish to make contributions to the ASB KiwiSaver Scheme, you can choose to make either lump sum or regular voluntary contributions.

Remember that if you wish to receive the maximum annual Government contribution, you will need to be an eligible member for the full year (1 July to 30 June) and contribute at least $1,042.86. 

If you are self-employed and pay yourself a salary or wages (subject to PAYE tax), you may be treated as an employee and employer for the purposes of KiwiSaver contributions.
