Transferring your Australian Super to NZ

You may be able to bring your Australian Super home with you.

Getting started

If you have money in certain Australian complying superannuation schemes, you may be able to transfer it to your KiwiSaver account with ANZ. To find out whether you can transfer your Australian Super, talk to your Australian provider first – they’ll be able to advise you.

Here you’ll find information on the benefits of transferring your Australian Super, what to think about, and what you need to do.

Why transfer your Australian Super?

Everyone’s situation is different, but there are some good reasons to consider transferring your Australian Super Scheme to your KiwiSaver account with ANZ.

Reducing fees

You may be paying administration fees and unnecessary insurance premiums on your Australian Super, which can eat into your returns. Transferring your money to your ANZ KiwiSaver account means fewer fees to pay.

Easier to manage

Consolidating your retirement savings into one KiwiSaver account makes it easier to stay on top of your investment – and with ANZ you can manage your KiwiSaver savings and ANZ accounts online, all in one place.

One currency

Consolidating your retirement funds into one KiwiSaver account means you know exactly how much money you have in your home currency.

What you need to consider

Transferring your Aussie Super may not be the best option for everyone. Here are some things to consider before applying.

Getting advice

We recommend speaking to your financial adviser to understand all the consequences before deciding to transfer your Australian Super to KiwiSaver.
