Who is eligible for the KiwiSaver first-home withdrawal?

To be eligible you need to have been a member of a KiwiSaver scheme, or a complying fund, for a minimum of three years and in general, you can’t currently own or have previously owned, property (see next paragraph). You must also intend to live in the property you are purchasing as your primary place of residence.

However, previous property owners may be eligible for a second chance withdrawal if they can show that they are in a similar financial position to a first home buyer.
