Existing KiwiSaver member
If you are already a member, your employer should begin
making KiwiSaver deductions for you unless you show them
a savings suspension notice. To ensure deductions start it
is recommended that you provide a KS2 form to your new
employer and to request confirmation the form has been
received. You’ll find more information in your KiwiSaver
information pack or go to www.kiwisaver.govt.nz
KiwiSaver contributions will be deducted from each payment of
your salary or wages. You may choose a contribution rate of 3%,
4%, 6%, 8% or 10%. If you don’t choose a rate, the default rate
of 3% applies. If you want to contribute more you can make
voluntary contributions directly to your scheme provider.
If you want to change your contribution rate, complete sections
B and C of this form and give it to your employer.
