Changes to KiwiSaver default coming
Changes to KiwiSaver default funds were announced by the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs earlier this year.

Feb Financial Health Check: Credit Rating
We are all about saving and lending at NZCU Employees. It’s why we have the products to benefit you, our valued customer.

We have some information about credit reports from Sorted to help you out
Teaching your kids about money
A new year often involves a vow to adopt a new approach to handling your money.
We’re often told we should give our children pocket money to practice handling finances for the future. But how much, when and why? The reality is that it depends on the child.
How to start depends on your own financial circumstances and the age of your children. As a parent, you’ll obviously want to know what you want or expect them to do with the money.
Back to school financial hustle
While many of us are still adjusting after the Christmas holidays, the first school term is fast approaching. Suddenly, we’re worrying about back to school expenses like stationery, equipment, uniforms, school fees and activities.
These expenses mount up fast, which can make it difficult and stressful trying to cover them so early in the year.
NZCU Employees, however, offers Personal Loans and Christmas Club Savings Accounts for Back-to-School expenses to help you get through.
A year of change and challenge
Chair Sam Maw is optimistic about NZCUE’s path into the New Year, but advises members to only borrow what is needed and can be paid back.
The biggest and most exciting change in 2019 has been the move to the new banking platform which brings an expansion of digital offerings.
What we really want for Christmas
The gift of time with family.
