A KiwiSaver First Home Savings Withdrawal can help you buy your own new home and add to your deposit.

If you have been contributing to KiwiSaver for 3 years you may now be eligible to withdraw some or all of your KiwiSaver savings other than the $1,000 initial kick start!

Did you know that the KiwiSaver savings withdrawal includes your contributions, your employer's contributions and any returns whilst the funds have been invested and any member tax credits. If you and your partner both qualify for a Savings Withdrawal, then these amounts can be combined.

This could add a significant amount to your deposit and make you eligible for a home loan.

It is important though to be aware that a withdrawal from your KiwiSaver account may impact on your long term savings plan. This must be discussed by you with your Investment Adviser as KiwiSaver is an Investment product and the Financial Advisers and staff of First Rate Mortgages Ltd are not able to provide advice on Investments.

The Key Points to be eligible for a KiwiSaver First Home Savings Withdrawal:

  • You have to have been a KiwSaver member for 3 or more years or a member of a complying fund.
  • You are buying your first home, to live in, not an investment property.

NOTE: Effective 1 April 2015 and onwards your KiwiSaver first home withdrawal may include:

  • your members contributions
  • any employer contributions (voluntary and compulsory)
  • any returns on investment(s) received
  • any member tax credits (MTCs).
  • Prior to 1 April 2015, KiwiSaver members were unable to withdraw their MTCs when purchasing their home.

    So if you are looking to increase your deposit to help you buy your own home and think that you may be eligible for a First Home Savings Withdrawal, it costs nothing to ask!
