We are pleased to announce that superannuation savings will soon be able to be moved between Australia and New Zealand The Federal Government recently passed legislation which is effective 1 July 2013 and will provide for eligible persons to be able to consolidate their retirement savings between Australian superannuation funds and KiwiSaver schemes in New Zealand. Given the ease of moving between these two countries, the ability to move your retirement savings when you leave Australia or New Zealand will be useful for many members currently unable to transfer their benefits between these countries. If you would like further information about this change and how you may be able to consolidate your super savings between Australia and New Zealand, please contact us on 1800 805 088.
