Keep your hands off KiwiSaver in economic downturn!
Commission for Financial Capability survey results
How we could do this better:
- Sidecar emergency savings fund attached to KiwiSaver
- More use of moneytalks.co.nz to access free financial advice and budgeting help
- Build up your own emergency fund
No paywalls or ads — just generous people like you. All Kiwis deserve accurate, unbiased financial guidance. So let’s keep it free. Can you help? Every bit makes a difference.
