How long does a KiwiSaver retirement withdrawal take?

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

Full KiwiSaver retirement withdrawals can take between 10 – 15 working days to process from when we receive your application. The process takes longer than you might expect because your final annual Government contributions need to be claimed from Inland Revenue.

Partial KiwiSaver retirement withdrawals not requiring a Government contribution claim should take between 5 – 10 working days to process.
