If you're made redundant, then KiwiSaver contributions deducted from your pay will stop when your employment ends.
Contributions will not be deducted from any redundancy payment you get.
When you start a new job
When you start a new job your employer will automatically start deducting your KiwiSaver contributions from your pay.
While you're not working
If you make voluntary contributions to your KiwiSaver account while you are not working, you could get the government's yearly member tax credit payment.
If you take a savings suspension, you will have a break in your saving for up to 1 year.
You have to be a KiwiSaver member for 12 months before you can do this.
If you're in financial hardship
If you're in significant financial hardship, you can apply to have your money released early.
You should apply to your scheme provider.
