Making Contributions

There are a number of ways to make contributions to Amanah KiwiSaver Plan:

Employee and employer Contributions

If you are employed, when you join Amanah KiwiSaver Plan your employer will automatically deduct contributions from your before-tax salary or wages at the contribution rate you selected (3%, 4% or 8%). You may also be eligible to receive employer contributions where your employer will match your contributions up to 3% of your income.

contribution holidays

If you're an employee, once you've been a member for 12 months you can take a break from saving - this is called a contributions holiday. A contributions holiday is for employees who want a break from making KiwiSaver contributions from their pay.

There are 2 options:

  • a contributions holiday (if you've been a member for 12 months or more)
  • an early contributions holiday (if you've been a member for less than 12 months).

For more information on taking contribution holidays, please visit the IRD website or contact us on 0800 4 AMANAH (0800 4 262624) or
