Can I contribute while I am overseas?
Yes you can, however, the Government will not match any contributions you make while you are not residing in NZ.
Can I take a break from contributing?
Yes, after 12 months of membership you can apply for a "savings suspension" of between 3 months and one year. A savings suspension request form can be obtained here. Please note that Inland Revenue administers these.
