What is a KiwiSaver Government Contribution?
When you join KiwiSaver, the Government will meet your KiwiSaver contributions with the Government Contribution (up to $521 a year). The eligibility to receive the Government Contribution ceases at of age 65 or five years after joining the scheme, whichever is later. For example, if someone joins at age 62, they will be eligible to receive the Government Contribution until they are 67.
Upon reaching your age of eligibility the amount of Government Contribution you are eligible for in that year will be pro-rated. If for example you reached the age of eligibility half way through the KiwiSaver year, you would only be eligible to receive half of the Government Contribution.
