Working after 65: ACC levies and entitlements
If you work after you turn 65, you still pay ACC levies. You can claim for treatment of injuries, but if you have an accident and can't work, your entitlement to weekly compensation changes.
Whether you’re an employee or self-employed, you pay ACC levies while you’re working. The payments do not change when you turn 65.
Your income if you have an accident
If you have an accident that stops you from working, you can get weekly compensation from ACC and NZ Super for 2 years.
At the end of that 2 years you receive only NZ Super.
Paying KiwiSaver while you’re getting ACC payments
If you want to keep making KiwiSaver contributions while you’re getting ACC weekly compensation, you need to give ACC a completed KiwiSaver deduction form.
ACC does not pay an employer contribution towards your KiwiSaver.
