KiwiSaver offers you the following features to help you into home ownership:

    • First home saving withdrawal – after a minimum of three years’ membership in a KiwiSaver scheme, you may be able to withdraw your savings, employer contribution and all returns (interest etc). Government contributions are not paid out in the first-home withdrawal (this includes the $1,000 kick-start, if you received one when you first joined).
    • First home deposit subsidy – you can apply for the deposit subsidy if you have belonged and have regularly contributed to a KiwiSaver scheme, complying fund or exempt employer scheme for at least three years. Under KiwiSaver HomeStart, buyers are eligible for $6,000* after three years, $8,000* after four years, and $10,000* after 5 years for the purchase of a newly-built home.
    • To be eligible for a KiwiSaver HomeStart Loan, your combined household income for the last 12 months must have been $85,000 or less (before tax) if you are the sole borrower. If you are partnering with one or more borrowers to buy a house, then you can have a combined household income of up to $130,000 (before tax).
