Labour leader Phil Goff, finance spokesperson David Cunliffe and economic development spokesperson David Parker officially announced the plan, which includes changes to Kiwisaver (including making the savings scheme compulsory), resuming Government contributions to the NZ Superannuation fund, and a slow raising of the retirement age to 47.
