The ASB KiwiSaver Scheme has different funds for different savings goals and investment timeframes (how long until you plan to access your savings). Choosing the right fund is important, it could make a difference of thousands of dollars in retirement.
If you haven't chosen a fund we'll automatically place you in the Conservative Fund. This is a lower risk fund with lower potential returns. This may or may not be right for you, so it is important to check you are in the right fund.
Login to FastNet Classic, select 'Personal profile' under the notification icon and check your contact details are correct. That way you won’t miss any updates and we can help you make the most of KiwiSaver.
Your ASB KiwiSaver Scheme welcome letter includes a form you can complete to confirm your identity. Next time you’re near an ASB branch, pop in with the Additional Information form, proof of your residential address and identity. That way you can easily make future changes to your KiwiSaver account.
Make sure your tax rate is set at the right level. Your tax rate defines the amount of tax you'll pay on your KiwiSaver investment income. If it's too high, you'll pay tax that you can't get back. If it's too low, you'll need to file a tax return and pay the outstanding amount.
It's easy to work out your tax rate with our simple calculator.
From increasing your contributions, to ensuring you receive the annual Government contribution if you qualify, there are many ways to make the most of KiwiSaver.
