What is financial hardship and will I qualify?

You can apply for an early withdrawal of funds if you’re suffering significant financial hardship – for example if you’re unable to meet essential living and/or medical costs. 

You’ll need to show that you’ve exhausted any reasonable alternative sources of funds, and if your application is granted, the amount you withdraw can be limited to a specific amount to meet your hardship requirements.

To learn more about hardship withdrawals you can visit the KiwiSaver website.
