Becoming a SuperGold kiwi is automatic and free
If you’re 65+ and a New Zealand resident, you don’t have to do anything to get SuperGold instant discounts and special offers. Once your NZ Super has been granted, the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) will automatically send your SuperGold card in the mail. This usually only takes a few weeks, but you may have to wait a month or two if you apply after you turn 65.
SuperGold is one way the Government and business community can say ‘thank you’ or ‘tēnā rawa atu koe’ to older New Zealanders for the work they’ve done raising families, supporting communities and contributing to Aotearoa.
