Thinking about switching providers?
If you’re looking to transfer your KiwiSaver account from an existing KiwiSaver provider or transfer funds from an overseas superannuation scheme, or join the Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver Scheme for the first time, take a look at your options.
You can change your KiwiSaver provider at any time, but you can only belong to one KiwiSaver scheme at a time.
If you want to change your provider, you must apply directly to the provider of the scheme you want to join. Your new provider will then arrange for your savings to be transferred from your old scheme to the new one. You'll be notified of the transfer.
You may be charged a transfer fee by your old scheme and will need to check this with your provider. The Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver Scheme doesn‘t charge joining or transfer fees.
Just complete our online application process and we will handle the rest – including:
