Many Filipino migrants to New Zealand who are now residents or citizens are finding it can be a great chance for them to save money.

 

Advantages

KiwiSaver has many general advantages. Some of these include that it means extra money from the employer. That means that a company a worker is working for can usually get 3% more money from that employer. It also allows you some benefits such as the member tax credits (MTC) to receive additional money from the government.

 

Use of KiwiSaver

In other rare cases, KiwiSaver can be withdrawn for financial hardship reasons.
