How much does my employer contribute to my KiwiSaver savings?
If you are over 18 and contributing to KiwiSaver from your salary or wages, your employer is required to put in a minimum of 3% of your Before Tax Pay (less employer's superannuation contribution tax).
You can choose to contribute 3%, 4%, 6%, 8% or 10%, however, your employer is still only required to contribute 3%.
The exception to this is if you are on a "Total Remuneration Package". This allows an employer to set a fixed remuneration amount for each employee. If the employee joins KiwiSaver, the cost of the employer contribution comes out of the employee's pay.
