You must be contributing 3% of your salary before you can increase your payments

To grow your KiwiSaver, you and your employer contribute. You can also make voluntary contributions. Your employer must contribute the minimum of 3% of your before tax pay.

If you're paying your KiwiSaver contributions through us, you can:

  • use the ‘Pay tax’ option and select 'KiwiSaver' through your internet banking
  • set up an automatic payment.

The government will add to your savings each year if you contribute.
