KiwiSaver myth busters roadshow rolls into town

Posted to Financial Capability on 08-11-2016

A new KiwiSaver myth-busting roadshow is being launched by the Commission for Financial Capability and the first stop will be Gisborne.

The “What the Finance’ (WTF) event is aimed at exploding some of the myths that stop people from getting the most out of KiwiSaver.

Gisborne was chosen for the launch because it has one of the lowest rates of KiwiSaver membership in the country.

David Boyle, the Commission’s investor education group manager, said: “We want to hear people’s burning questions, however big or small, there’s no question too tough for us to answer.”

Questions like what happens to your money if you die before 65; what are the benefits of being in KiwiSaver; how to get into your first home; and how to get free money every year from the government.

David added: “If people have the right information we think they are much more likely to join KiwiSaver and make choices that will help them in the future.”

The roadshow is aimed at everyone, whether you are in KiwiSaver already or not, and will be fun, free and we’ll even throw in lunch.

We are particularly keen to encourage Maori and Pasifika to come along and find out more.

Peter Cordtz, the Commission’s community and education group manager said: “We’ve talked to a lot of people in these communities who feel marginalised and disengaged by the big conversations about finance, money and saving for the future and, as a result, don’t engage.

“We are trying to make these really important issues more accessible and more relevant to their needs.”

Register for a place by emailing: office@cffc.org.nz.

It will be opened by Commerce Minister Paul Goldsmith and will feature a Q&A session: if you aren’t comfortable asking a question out loud, then write it down and pop it in our question box.
