Overseas Pensions and Payment of NZ Super and Veterans Pension Overseas

The Government is investing an additional $6 million over the next four years into the payment of New Zealand Superannuation and Veterans Pensions overseas. The change will provide New Zealanders with a greater choice about where they live or travel abroad in retirement. Superannuitants wanting to move overseas will now be able to receive up to 100% of the full rate of payment rather than the current flat rate of 50%. Superannuitants who wish to travel to multiple countries will still be entitled to payment during their absence from New Zealand. .

Positive Ageing Indicators 2007

This Positive Ageing Indicators 2007 report is the first step in the establishment of a regular programme of social monitoring focused on older people. The aim of the report is to provide information on the overall wellbeing of older people in New Zealand. In most of the indicators, the terms ”older population” and ”older people” refer to people aged 65 years and over (unless otherwise stated) living in private dwellings (this is noted in the introductory section of each indicator). “Private dwellings” includes retirement villages, but not rest homes and hospitals.
