Announce review of DSW's application of Section 70 of The Social Security Act 1964

Please make some public comments on NZF's pre election manifesto commitment to review and curtail the dreadfully unfair, draconian, application of Section 70 of The Social Security Act 1964 as it pertains to the foreign contributory savings plans deduction from NZ Super, including deducting a spouse's foreign payments from a Superannuitants' Super (even when the spouse is not even yet age 65). Canada Pension Plan (CPP), a Kiwisaver type scheme with no taxpayer contribution at all is an example. CPP is an entirely self-savings funded scheme that my wife and I contributed to in a brief OE time in Canada yet, along with my wife's CPP payments (she is aged only 63), gets deducted from my NZ Super. Grossly unfair and unjust. If we had stayed in NZ and contributed to Kiwisaver instead, there would be no deduction.
