Why have we launched Retire Easy?
We always want members to have products and services that are useful.
That's why we surveyed members back in 2021 about reverse mortgages.
The survey was a real eye-opener and confirmed we had members who had served and worked hard but, for various reasons, their retirement wasn’t as rosy as it could be.
Members told us:
"It's hard to make ends meet. I'm still working 3 days a week, so this isn't the retirement I'd hoped for".
"Costs are going up all the time - rates, insurance, healthcare - the super isn't enough to cover the basic cost of living."
"It's a good way to free up some equity in your home. It's an option that enables ongoing independence."
With the cost of living and inflation rising, we launched Retire Easy to make it easy for our members to live the retirement they’ve dreamed of and worked hard for.
Who is Retire Easy for?
Members aged 70+ who are either mortgage-free or wish to use the new loan to pay-off their current home loan.
What can it be used for?
Retire Easy can be used for anything, from fixing up the house, to following the All Blacks on an overseas tour, to getting some important medical stuff taken care of.
