Government contributions

The Government contribution is an annual contribution to reward you for growing your KiwiSaver. For every dollar you put into your KiwiSaver account, the Government will put in 50 cents – up to a maximum of $521.43 a year. You can see how much you've contributed so far this year in your myKiwiWealth account.

You can generally expect to see your Government contribution in your KiwiSaver account by the end of July.

Making withdrawals

KiwiSaver withdrawals

You can generally only make a withdrawal from your KiwiSaver account once you turn 65 or when you're buying your first house, though there are a few other reasons you might be able to access your savings.

Managed Funds withdrawals

With a Managed Fund, you can request a withdrawal at any time.

Market volatility

Why is my balance going down?
