KiwiSaver contributions are optional from paid parental leave (PPL) payments.

If you’re already a KiwiSaver member, you can choose to continue your contributions while on PPL when you complete your application in myIR. Or you can make your own payments to your KiwiSaver provider. Contact them to find out how to do this.

If you’re not a KiwiSaver member yet, you can choose to join KiwiSaver by using the Manage my KiwiSaver service in myIR.

There are no employer contributions from paid parental leave payments.

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.
