Income rules for NZ Super with non-qualified partner included

Some people getting NZ Super or Veteran’s Pension have their non-qualified partner (a partner who doesn't meet the qualifications for NZ Super or Veteran’s Pension) included in their payments. This only applies to clients who included their partner before 9 November 2020. 

If you're getting NZ Super with non-qualified partner included you need to tell us about any income you, or your partner, get. If you get extra help, you may need to tell us about one-off payments or any assets you have.
