Changes to the myIR login screen are coming You will not be able to use myIR between 1pm Saturday 8 October and 8am Monday 10 October. This is so we can update our external authentication system. From Monday 10 October the myIR login page will have a new look and feel, but the login process will not change.

KiwiSaver contributions are optional from paid parental leave (PPL) payments.

If you’re not a KiwiSaver member yet, you can choose to join KiwiSaver by using the Manage my KiwiSaver service in myIR.

There are no employer contributions from paid parental leave payments.
