Overseas Pensions. Policy review required

The Herald article, by Susan St John and Claire Dale highlighting the injustice of foreign pensioned spouses pensions being docked, just because they are married to a New Zealander, indicates how useful the KASPANZ site is in bringing pension matters into the open.

One thought on “Pension injustice

  1. Jan McKeogh

    Whilst the article which is most welcome in its intention, not only highlights the plight of spousal deductions, but also that of the unfairness in general of overseas pension deduction against one’s eligibility and rights to NZS.Spousal deductions is only one half of the story which our Government abides by. The other half which is deduction of ones own annuity earned honestly and fairly in another country, is equally criminal.
