Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Poll: Is it time to raise New Zealand's superannuation age?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Outgoing Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell has been outspoken about the need to increase the pension age from 65.

"You used to get super for five years, then 10 and now 20 - soon it'll be 30. I'm not sure how we can fund people getting super for 30 years or more."

"You used to get super for five years, then 10 and now 20 - soon it'll be 30. I'm not sure how we can fund people getting super for 30 years or more."

New Zealand has one of the simplest pension schemes in the world - all you have to do is be old enough and have lived in the country long enough and you can get it.

But that also makes it expensive - about $14.5 billion this year. Jobseeker benefits, by comparison, cost just $1.7b and sole parent support $1.08b.

A "strict and dominating" Catholic father cut five of his children from his will after he felt they deserted the religion.

But five years after his death, a High Court heard Jack Enright's will was "morally and legally questionable" and awarded four of the five out-of-pocket siblings nearly $1 million each.

Enright built up a trust - valued at $11.5 million in 2009 - through building homes in Queenstown, a property development business and ownership of a 10,000 hectare farm, Dunstan Burn Station, in Central Otago.
