About Te Ara Ahunga Ora Retirement Commission

The team at Te Ara Ahunga Ora Retirement Commission is on a mission to help New Zealanders retire with confidence. With a multigenerational approach we want to ensure people feel secure they'll have resources and the know-how to make ends meet. You might know us for our award-winning sorted.org.nz website, but there's much more to us than that.

We focus on 3 areas: retirement policies, retirement villages and financial capability. We advise Government on the policies to enhance retirement outcomes for New Zealanders, including monitoring the framework for retirement villages. Together with a range of partners we help build financial wellbeing and contribute to a better understanding of what retirement means in the 21st century.
