To help give our tamariki a hand, we’re removing the annual membership fee of $27 p.a. for minors. So if you’re under 18, regardless of your account balance, from Oct.1st, we’ll no longer charge the membership fee, which is normally deducted from your account on a monthly basis.
For those with balances under $1,000, we’ll continue to waive the membership fee as well. The management fee (which varies according to your fund type) remains unchanged.
