Since 1 July 2013, people have had the option of transferring retirement savings between Australia and New Zealand after emigrating from one country to the other under the Trans-Tasman Retirement Savings Portability Scheme.
If you have moved to live permanently in Australia, or are planning to do so, you may be interested in combining your KiwiSaver scheme savings into an Australian superannuation account.
First Super is one of the few Australian super funds that can accept a transfer of KiwiSaver scheme savings.
We can accept both your KiwiSaver scheme transfer to your First Super account AND your Super Guarantee Contributions from your Australian employer.
More details and a transfer checklist are included in our KiwiSaver Transfers fact sheet.
