Are you eligible to withdraw your KiwiSaver funds from 1 July 2012?
KiwiSaver will reach its five-year anniversary on 1 July 2012 and you may be eligible to withdraw your funds beginning on that date.
You may withdraw funds from KiwiSaver once you either qualify for New Zealand Superannuation (currently age 65) or reach the date of your fifth anniversary of membership whichever is the latter. For example, if you joined KiwiSaver aged 63 then you are not be eligible to withdraw until after five years, when you turn 68.
We recommend that you check your ‘start date’ with your scheme provider and ensure they have your correct date of birth and contact details.
