Deduction of overseas renders abolished as of 9 November 2020
From 9 November 2020, your New Zealand Superannuation or Veteran’s Pension won’t be affected if your partner’s getting an overseas pension, e.g. from the OASI. If your pension has been reduced because your partner has a OASI render from Switzerland, based on compulsory contributions, this will no longer be the case as of 9 November 2020 as New Zealand abolishes the so called "spousal deduction".
