Before you start
You will need:
- your IRD number
- the rate you want – 3%, 4%, 6%, 8%, or 10%.
Give written notification to your employer
You can do this by either:
- an email or letter
- giving your employer a completed KiwiSaver deduction form (KS2)
Change your contribution rate through myIR
Log into myIR:
- select 'Change KiwiSaver Contribution Rate’ under the ‘more’ menu of your KiwiSaver account
- complete the form and submit.
Change your contribution rate through your KiwiSaver provider
Contact your KiwiSaver provider to change your KiwiSaver contribution rate.
What happens next
If you change your contribution rate through myIR or your KiwiSaver provider, we will notify your employer of your new chosen contribution rate.
Once your employer receives notification from you or us they will change your KiwiSaver contribution rate starting from the next pay they calculate.
