November statements

The latest six-monthly member statement is due to be sent out early November. The statement is a good opportunity for members to review their savings, balance and tax rates. Many Whai Rawa members still haven’t supplied all their tax information, which means that they are automatically defaulted to the highest rates: PIR 28% and RSCT 33%.

If you or your tamariki are yet to supply your tax rates or IRD number, or you need to change them, get in touch with us so you make the most of your Whai Rawa membership. For more information about your statement, head to our website or give us a call on 0800 942 472.

Don’t be a hōhā, give the whānau a koha

The exceptionally popular Koha Certificates for Whai Rawa savings are available again this year. Just let us know how much you’ve paid into a whānau member’s account and when. We’ll do the rest by sending the card to your whānau /moko’ on your behalf – call us for more details.
