ASB Economic Update: Government signals intention to change NZ Superannuation
Last week Prime Minister Bill English confirmed plans to change the eligibility criteria and start age for NZ Superannuation. If re-elected in September, the National Party proposes to change eligibility from 65 to 67 years old. The proposed changes make sense: people are living longer and,
combined with an aging population, the cost of NZ Superannuation will lift dramatically over the years ahead.
