KiwiSaver Beginners Guide - Part One - [Video]

This series of four videos was produced by the New Zealand Herald at the end of 2012. 

We feel that they are a great introduction to KiwiSaver, answering lots of questions.  If these questions raise unanswered questions for you at the end of the video, ask us, go to http://www.moneyworks.co.nz/kiwisaver_question/ and Ask us a KiwiSaver Question.

With nearly two million members and $12.8 billion invested in KiwiSaver, nzherald.co.nz is launching a four-part video series about the retirement savings scheme.

Five years since it kicked off, KiwiSaver is still a mystery to many New Zealanders and we decided to provide a simple guide which covers the nuts and bolts.

Experts Mary Holm and Chris Douglas tackle all the basic questions in a way which is easy to understand and jargon-free.
