Can I use money in my KiwiSaver account to help buy a home?

If you’ve been in New Zealand's KiwiSaver superannuation scheme for at least three years, and are buying your first residential property (to live in), you may be eligible to withdraw money to put towards a home loan deposit. Where this is possible, you can withdraw your own contributions and your employer’s contributions, but not the $1000 New Zealand Government kick-start or any tax credits.

The KiwiSaver website provides further advice about this.
