If you have worked in Australia anytime since 1992 and have an Australian Super account then you are now able to bring that money home. Transferring your Australian Superannuation savings to your KiwiSaver account in NZ is easy and means that you avoid paying two sets of fees and can make it easier to keep track of your savings.
Yes! Not only can you withdraw your entire account balance to lay down a deposit for your first home, you can also access the NZ government's homestart grant, which is a grant up to the value of $10,000 that is used to help pay for your first home.
No. However making changes to your fund type and viewing your KiwiSaver is still easy, with the latter able to be viewed on your online banking account and the former able to be changed through their website. Alternatively, you can request a call or email Generate through their website.
Your contributions to your Generate KiwiSaver account help to influence your KiwiSavers performance immensely. You can choose to contribute 3%, 4% or 8% of your income regularly to your KiwiSaver, and your employer is required to contribute a minimum of 3%. Additionally, for every dollar you contribute, the government will contribute 50 cents up to the value of $521.43 a year.
I’ve just had a great experience with Kurt from glimp compare. He helped me through the process from the time I clicked onto the website, via the chat function. Long story short I have signed up to a new power and broadband provider with significant cost savings. There was no pressure at any stage, just respectful guidance and facilitation to initiate the new supply.
Easiest service to use and knowledgeable and experienced staff. Made switching power and broadband stress free! Thanks Jamie S, they answered all my questions I had about starting a new connection for broadband and power - even better than calling Slingshot direct as I got 3 months free internet and credit for using my own modem :)
Virtually instant contact after filling out online form. Great rep - friendly and informative, great deal made for cheaper power, overall so far so good 😁
Thank you Glimp and Larry G for helping me today. Larry contacted me real quick to answer my questions and help me with my trouble about the Power provider. He also explained to me what are the difference between my current and the new provider. Thank you!
very confusing. I signed up, completed my details and it was sent to Stuff. I then get notified to sign up on Stuff, so I do that and get an order notification. I then get an email an hour later from Glimp asking me to complete my order by following the link, and to hurry so as not to miss out. I am then taken to a Stuff page again to complete an order that is not the order I signed up for, i.e. 4 months half price not the 6 months half price I agreed to. So I have no idea now what the status is and what deal stuff think I am on.
