    Fisher Funds Answers: Common KiwiSaver and Retirement Questions

    We often get asked questions about retirement – it’s a big life change so it’s important to be prepared. In these two videos, we discuss how much money you might need to retire and look at some of the ways you can manage your KiwiSaver money once you’ve turned 65.

    How much money will I need to retire?

    Wealth Management Adviser Victoria Carpenter explains how it’s important to think about the kind of retirement you want, and how making a few quick changes today can make a huge difference to your retirement savings.

    I’m 65 years old, can I still invest in KiwiSaver?

    Just because you’ve reached the age of 65, you may not need to access all your KiwiSaver money straightaway.

    You can make regular or lump sum withdrawals as and when you need to – or you can even open a KiwiSaver account for the first time after you’ve turned 65.

    Senior Wealth Adviser Aaron Hinks explains how continuing to contribute and grow your KiwiSaver investment past 65 is a great way to build your wealth in your retirement or for your family’s future.
