Call for KiwiSaver contributions for those aged over 65

From Morning Report, 7:22 am on 21 May 2019

A teacher who is continuing to work after his 65th birthday says he feels discriminated against because his employer - the government - no longer pays a contribution to his KiwiSaver.

Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters on Monday gave support to the idea of changing the rules so that employers would be forced to contribute Kiwisaver payments for over-65 year olds who are still working.
