Kiwisaver withdrawal - permanent emigration processing time

Hi everyone,

I have moved to Canada permanently and have mailed an application to have my Kiwisaver funds deposited into my Canadian bank account. The application has been received.

I would like to know what the average processing time is? I am in the process of changing banks in Canada and have left my old account open to receive the funds. I need to know how much to leave in the account for monthly fees


Hi there, as each application to withdraw Kiwisaver is different the average processing time we can advise is a minimum of 10 working days. Here is the link to our fees page on the BNZ website - Adina.
