How do I apply for a KiwiSaver first home withdrawal?

Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver Scheme members should contact us first to check your eligibility for a first home withdrawal.

Firstly, you should contact us to confirm the amount you are eligible to withdraw – you are able to withdraw everything in your account except for $1,000 and any money that may have been transferred into your KiwiSaver account from a complying Australia superannuation scheme.

You will then need to complete the First or Second Chance Home Withdrawal Form and email it to us at

If you have previously owned a property, you will need to apply to Housing New Zealand first, to assess your eligibility for a second chance withdrawal.
