KiwiSaver is the only retirement savings scheme option in which new State-sector employees can enrol and receive an employer contribution.
Some employees may already belong to other State-sector retirement savings schemes, and they may continue to do so when transferring from one school to another; however these are closed to new employees.
KiwiSaver is a voluntary savings scheme designed to make it easier for New Zealanders to save for their future. For most of the board's employees, KiwiSaver will be work-based. This means they will receive information about KiwiSaver from the school, and their KiwiSaver contributions will come straight out of their pay.
To manage KiwiSaver for your school's employees, see:
