Swiss Old Age and Survivors Insurance OASI/AHV/AVS & NZ Superannuation

Deduction of overseas renders abolished as of 1 July 2020

From 1 July 2020, your New Zealand Superannuation or Veteran’s Pension won’t be affected if your partner’s getting an overseas pension, e.g. from the OASI. If your pension has been reduced because your partner has a OASI render from Switzerland, based on compulsory contributions, this will no longer be the case as of 1 July 2020 as New Zealand abolishes the so called "spousal deduction". For further information, please visit the following website or contact your local Work and Income office.
