Making changes

You can make changes to your Kiwibank KiwiSaver Scheme account at your local Kiwibank, over the phone or in internet banking. You can:

  • view balances and transactions
  • transfer funds from other Kiwibank accounts into your member account
  • change your investment option
  • change funds if you’re in Classic
  • change your investment mix if you’re in Self Managed.

The first two changes to your investment options, funds, or Self Managed investment mix in any 12 month period (starting from your enrolment date) are free. After that a switch fee will apply.

Contributions holidays

If you’ve been making contributions from your pay for 12 months or more, you can take a contributions holiday of between 3 months and 5 years. You don't need to provide a reason. In some cases Inland Revenue may agree to a holiday of less than 3 months.

There’s no limit to the number of times you can take a contributions holiday and you can renew it at any time.

To apply for a contributions holiday you can:

Early withdrawals

There are some circumstances where you can apply to withdraw some or all of your investment early. You can read more about them on the KiwiSaver website.
