KiwiSaver tweaks when money's tight

Shared Lunch

Is it a challenge to keep building that KiwiSaver for a first-home deposit or retirement?

With KiwiSaver withdrawals continuing to rise, we look at  what you can do if you find yourself in a tight spot, and what does a withdrawal, pause or adjusting your contribution entail?

Simon O’Neill, financial advisor at Velocity Financial, sets out the options. And why it’s important not to stop and be in the right fund. Plus what to consider when planning for a first-home deposit withdrawal.
