KiwiSaver and your existing employees

Existing employees can choose to join KiwiSaver if they meet the eligibility criteria.

They can do this by:

  • giving you the KiwiSaver deduction form (KS2) to tell you of their chosen deduction rate of either 3%, 4%, 6%, 8% or 10%, or
  • contacting their chosen KiwiSaver scheme provider.

You need to give your employee the Your introduction to KiwiSaver - employee information (KS3) pack within seven days of receiving the KS2.

You must make KiwiSaver deductions from all payments of salary and wages from their next pay until:

  • the employee no longer receives salary or wages,
  • a savings suspension is granted,
  • we notify you to stop making deductions, or
  • the employee gives you a Non-deduction notice (KS51).

  • have had an opt out declined
