When someone dies there are often tax and other financial matters you need to take care of. For example, you may need to file a final income tax return or make child support payments.

Letting us know someone has died makes sure:

  • we pay any tax refund due to the person who died to their estate
  • there will be no more penalties on tax owing
  • any child support owed is paid, or any child support due is paid to their estate
  • we know about any changes to a Working for Families situation
  • we take care of any student loans
  • we transfer any KiwiSaver funds we hold to their estate.
