As Kiwis we tend to be a bit too fond of the saying “She’ll be right!” Most of the time it is, but when it comes to the most important decisions, sometimes we’re not very good at making them.
Many of us haven't got around to creating a will, meaning if we pass away there could be delays and additional costs for our loved ones during an already stressful time.
What would happen to your KiwiSaver?
When it comes to your KiwiSaver, having a will is important to make sure that your money goes to who you want it to.
You may assume that your partner will automatically get access to your KiwiSaver money – unfortunately that’s not necessarily the case. If you have over $15,000 in your KiwiSaver account and you pass away without a will, the courts will have to decide how to divide your estate without your input. So, to make sure your money goes to who you want it to, it pays to have a will.
