Young Couple Scenario
Mike and Sally have both joined KiwiSaver. Mike was automatically enrolled when he started his new job but he then spoke to Denis who helped him decide which KiwiSaver provider and product was best suited for him. Sally’s a stay at home Mum and wanted to make the most out of what the Government was giving away so she joined up too.
What do you like about KiwiSaver Sally? I can log on to my providers website and see my balance online. It’s simple to understand and at least I can track where my money is going.
What do you like about KiwiSaver Mike? Denis spoke to me about how KiwiSaver can help me buy our first home. We’ve been saving up for a home for a few years but never seem to get far. With KiwiSaver, Housing Corp could give us up to $10,000 as a couple to use as a deposit. I can also use my own KiwiSaver money for that deposit too – it makes savings easier. My KiwiSaver money comes out before I get my pay check so I don’t even notice it – it’s only $2 for every $100 I earn anyway.
