Why it matters more than you think.
Compound interest can significantly increase savings over time, making it important for KiwiSaver members to make the most of the Government Contribution (formerly called member tax credit) for long-term benefits.
Please note that the calculator assumes that you have been making employee contributions at your stated level of gross income for a period of one year and assumes that you have been a qualifying member for one full year.
