Example

A person (B) is born overseas on 30 June 1967. B moves to New Zealand and becomes both resident and present in New Zealand on 1 July 2022 at age 55. The earliest date on which B can meet their total time requirement is 14 years later, on 1 July 2036, at age 69. B meets this requirement by being both resident and present in New Zealand for a total of 12 years, in the Cook Islands for a total of 1 year, and in Niue for a total of 1 year.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the New Zealand Superannuation and Retirement Income (Fair Residency) Amendment Bill to extend the commencement date to 1 July 2023. The Retirement Commissioner advocated for a delay of 5 years; however, in discussions with the Government, 2 years was considered sufficient. The commencement date, the table of total time requirement, and the example have therefore been shifted out by 2 years.
