The Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income takes a lifetime view to educating and informing New Zealanders from 5 to 105 about managing their personal finances to ensure adequate provision for retirement.
The Commission is best known to New Zealanders through our free, independent Sorted website and related resources. We continuously enhance Sorted with more information and calculators and extend our range of printed resources to reach more people in the workplace and community.
Under the New Zealand Superannuation and Retirement Income Act 2001, the Commission is required to review the retirement income policies implemented by Government. In 2010 they completed their second three-yearly review which helps widen a shared understanding of current retirement income policy and where it is heading.
The Commission also has a role in protecting the interests of residents and intending residents of retirement villages by monitoring the Retirement Villages Act 2003.
