Financial hardship support
Struggling to pay your basic living costs? You may be eligible for financial hardship support, which can provide options to reduce your loan repayment amounts, restructure debt or take a payment holiday.
During a separation, you may need to establish your exact financial position at the time of the split. Download your statements on all your accounts, including KiwiSaver, as far back as possible.
Time for a new account?
When you’re splitting finances, it might be the right time to open a savings or transactional account that only has your name on it.
