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 The money in your KiwiSaver account can only be withdrawn for a select number of reasons- your eligibility for NZ super is the primary reason for most people to withdraw money from their KiwiSaver, however if you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.
