Wanted: better insurance against outliving our savings. Imagine you’re heading into retirement. You’ll get NZ Super, but you also have savings in KiwiSaver or elsewhere. You would like to spend that money over the rest of your life and leave the house to the kids. But — not knowing how long you will live — how can you decide how much to spend each year?
Q&As: Why it wouldn’t work to make tax changes for rental property apply only to people who buy property after a certain date; Landlord retaliation probably won’t last long; Holding people accountable for giving bad KiwiSaver advice — and lining up a partner to also get the first home subsidy; How might people with private pensions be compensated for rise in GST?
