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 don't change when you turn 65.
Your income if you have an accident
If you have an accident that stops you from working, you get both weekly compensation and NZ Super for only 12 months. For the next 12 months, you must choose to get either weekly compensation from ACC or NZ Super. ACC writes to you about 3 months before you need to make this decision.
At the end of that 12 months 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 doesn't pay an employer contribution towards your KiwiSaver.
