How long does a KiwiSaver first home withdrawal take?

Make sure you allow at least 15 working days for your first home withdrawal.

Your KiwiSaver is a locked-in investment which means releasing the funds may take longer than you might expect.

Kiwi Wealth members need to get their application to us at least 15 working days before the date they’ll need their funds for a deposit or settlement.

It pays to be as prepared as possible if you are going to be using your KiwiSaver investment to help towards your first home purchase – learn more about how to get prepared here.
