KiwiSaver, India and Me

How KiwiSaver helped a widow get to India
KiwiSaver is valuable at helping people to achieve a wide range of goals, saving for day to day expenditure in retirement, saving for the deposit on a first home, saving for a 'treat' or 'trip' in retirement.

This is a story of a Moneyworks client, who joined KiwiSaver when it was launched, and faithfully contributed at $87 a month.

With the investment earnings and Government subsidies, she was able to use the funds to travel on a long wanted trip to India, with funds left over to add to her retirement savings.
