Your Money with Mary Holm: Five KiwiSaver developments

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:14 pm on 13 June 2019

Financial journalist and author Mary Holm talks about how KiwiSaver has reached two milestones.

She also urges members to make sure - in the next few days - that they will get the maximum government contribution this year, and suggests people aged 60 to 64 sign up before July 1 to get a better deal from the scheme.

Mary next turns to KiwiSaver statements - how they are now giving members more information, and how next year's statements will be better still.  

She also suggests members use an online KiwiSaver health checker to see if they are in the right fund for them, and paying the correct tax.
Finally, Mary says that the Commission for Financial Capability is reviewing how KiwiSaver could be improved. She asks listeners to email their suggestions to mary@maryholm.com, with the subject "KiwiSaver changes" before Sunday June 23.  Mary will forward the best ideas to the Commission.
