If you would like to make KiwiSaver contributions while you're on parental leave, you will need to send us a completed KiwiSaver deduction form - KS2. There are no employer contributions from paid parental leave payments.
You can also make your own payments to your KiwiSaver provider. Contact them to find out how to do this.
If you intend to use your KiwiSaver funds for a first home, check the Kāinga Ora website to find out if taking a break will affect your eligibility.
