Mercer’s website allows you to access your online Mercer account where you can quickly and easily view your Mercer KiwiSaver performance. On your online Mercer account you can monitor and change your investments, review your contributions, update your details, and access a full range of financial tools and calculators.
Finding (and buying!) your first home is an important step in any persons life, and so yes, you can withdraw from your KiwiSaver to help buy your first home! The combination of your KiwiSaver contributions, your employer’s contributions, the government's contributions and the government’s Homestart loan means that your KiwiSaver account often goes a long way in helping to pay for a deposit for your first home.
The default Mercer KiwiSaver scheme is their Conservative Fund. This is because the default scheme is designed to be short term only, so that your savings are protected whilst you decide which fund you would prefer to go with. Changing funds is easy: you can simply login to you Mercer account or call Mercer of 0508 637 237 and they can change accounts for you over the phone.
Making a contribution with Mercer is easy; you can make regular or lump sum voluntary payments directly into your account from online banking by searching for the Mercer KiwiSaver scheme as a payee and following your banks instructions to complete the process. Automatic contributions are made every time you are paid by your workplace if you are signed up to KiwiSaver, with your employer and the government contributing to your KiwiSaver as well.
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.
