Yes. Kiwi Wealth is part of the same family as Kiwibank and serves as their KiwiSaver provider; both are 100% New Zealand owned and provide you with quality Kiwi service.
Yes! The money in your KiwiSaver account can only be withdrawn for a select number of reasons- your eligibility for NZ super is the primary reason for most people to withdraw money from their KiwiSaver, however if you emigrate permanently, are suffering from significant financial hardship or from a serious illness, or are using the money for a deposit for your first home then you are able to withdraw your money from your KiwiSaver account.
The default Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver scheme is the Kiwi Wealth fund type that you will be automatically placed in if you do not choose a specific fund type. This fund type however is suited for short term investments only, and generally will not lead to as much growth as other funds, so it’s important to work out which Kiwi Wealth fund works best for you and then switch to that!
You can make a voluntary contribution to your Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver at any time through direct debit, internet banking, cheque, or through inland revenue. Just remember that even though this is a voluntary contribution, it will still be locked in your KiwiSaver account.
Both the highlighted deals i clicked through to get turned out to be inaccurate speeds. Glimp saying 300/100 both providers only offering 100/20 for the price given, despite giving the same address in both sites. still giving 3 stars though as regardless the deals through Glimp are better than the standard advertised deals on the providers site.
Sign up didn't go quite the way it was meant to. But Kate called and she walked through everything so we could work out what went wrong. she was patient, friendly, supportive and kept me calm to finally get plan registration sorted ( still can't log in though - she must be magic )
Found it really easy to find what i needed and also got a call regarding what deals might be best suited etc. Saves a lot of time. Highly reccommend glimp
