Who
You and your employer must contribute
Rate
You must be contributing 3% of your salary before you can increase your payments

To grow your KiwiSaver account, you and your employer contribute. You can also make voluntary contributions. Your employer must contribute the minimum of 3% of your before tax pay.

If you're paying your KiwiSaver contributions through us, you can:

  • use the ‘Pay tax’ option and select 'KiwiSaver' through your internet banking
  • set up an automatic payment.

The government will add to your savings each year if you contribute.
