You have until 25 June 2015 to claim up to an extra $521.43 for your KiwiSaver scheme account.
For all of our clients that are not currently contributing to their KiwiSaver plans with regular contributions or member / employer contributions, you can claim your Member Tax Credit (MTC).
You will receive 50c for every dollar you contribute so to receive the full amount of $521.43, you will need to contribute at least $1,042.86 into your KiwiSaver plan by 25 June 2015.
If you are over 65, you will not be eligible for the Government Tax Credit, the exception being if you joined KiwiSaver prior to age 65, then the Government Tax Credits are payable for five years to a maximum age of 70.
For example, if you joined KiwiSaver at age 64, your KiwiSaver is locked in a minimum of five years till you are aged 69. Therefore, the Government will continue to make the annual tax credit of $521 per year to your KiwiSaver plan until age 69, provided you have contributed $1,042.86 for that year.
