Do I need to have a KiwiSaver account?
If you are not current a member - we highly recommend join. After three years you may be able to withdraw your contribution plus your employer's contributions. You can choose your contribution rate from 3%, 4%, 6%, 8% and 10% of salary. This can contribute hugely to your deposit for buying your first dream home. You may also be eligible for the First Home Grant. So yes, KiwiSaver is a great help for first home buyers.
