Buying your first home
Once you’ve been a member of a KiwiSaver scheme for at least three years, you may be able to withdraw some of your contributions to help you purchase a first home. More about buying your first home with KiwiSaver.
Saving for retirement
KiwiSaver was created to help New Zealanders save for retirement. Your KiwiSaver savings will generally be locked away until you reach retirement^. Once available, you can withdraw everything in your KiwiSaver account or take out partial amounts over time.
