Raising super age impact
From: Brendon Mills
Dear Ministry of Social Development,
I would like to know what studies have been done into the rate of poverty/hardship among those affected when the age of eligibility for NZ Superannuation was raised from 60 to 65 from 1992 to 2001

Tēnā koe Brendon Mills,
Thank you for your email received 3 January 2022, under the Official Information Act 1982. Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate officials at National Office to respond. You can expect a decision as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any case not later than 20 working days after the day on which the request was received.
In some cases where the information you have requested will likely contain Ministry employee names and contact details, we will need to consult relevant Ministry employees before deciding whether we can release this information to you, and this will take additional time and effort.
If you do not need the names of Ministry employees who are below tier 4 and/or who are not decision-makers, please advise us as soon as possible and we will treat your request as amended accordingly.
In any event, the Ministry will make and communicate to you a decision on your request as soon as reasonably practicable, and within the statutory maximum time limits – including the extension of time limits (Section 15A of the Act).
Please note that over the holiday period, there are three weeks that are not classified as working days. In accordance with Section 2 of the Official Information Act 1982, this period is 25 December 2021 to 15 January 2022 (inclusive). As such, OIA requests received on or after 29 November 2021 may take longer than you might expect. For more information on the latest date you can expect a response, please find the OIA Calculator on the Ombudsman website here: www.ombudsman.parliament.nz/agency-assis....
