Westpac Starter Pac is available to customers under the age of 18 and comprises both a Westpac Savings account and membership of the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme. Offer available from 1 March 2014 until 31 August 2014 (unless extended) for customers who, within that period: open or hold a Westpac Savings account and join or belong to the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme (including transferring in from another KiwiSaver scheme). For Westpac Starter Pac customers, the current Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme monthly administration fee (currently $2.59 per month) will be waived for 2014 and each subsequent calendar year until they turn 18 providing a deposit has been made into a Westpac Savings account in the customer’s name during the previous calendar year. Other fees applicable to the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme, as described in the current Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme investment statement, will still apply. Where the customer turns 18 during a calendar year that the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme monthly administration fee is being waived, the fee will be reapplied from the end of that calendar year. A copy of both the current Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme Investment Statement and Westpac New Zealand Limited disclosure statement are available free of charge from any Westpac branch in New Zealand.
